A multi-million-pound 24,000 sq ft Cat B refurbishment of a major office scheme in the centre of Cardiff. The external elevation of the building was transformed and created a two-storey atrium above the reception area.

The project also included external landscaped break out and seating areas, bike parking, shower facilities and electric vehicle charging points.

Notable features high quality fit out, cleaning and access requirements to substantial glazing throughout, 4.8m tall ceilings, coordination with other trades who were employed by the property owner for routine maintenance of the building.

At each stage of the RIBA process, Green Hat worked with the client to align the quality design objectives of the office block with health and safety considerations by coordinating with the design teams at regular intervals ensuring clear communication of all relevant issues from design through to eventual demolition and disposal. The Green Hat approach ensured the creation of a safe and high-quality working environment during the construction phase right up to practical completion in December 2022.
