Zurich Financial Services Limited

calfordseaden has recently been involved in a complex contract to improve the appearance and functionality of main reception facilities of a high profile town centre office development in the heart of Swindon.

The client organisation perceived the existing reception provision was not visually attractive and did not adequately convey the client’s corporate image. In addition to this, the original configuration of the reception gave rise to some issues of thermal comfort which, for the benefit of staff and visitors alike, needed to be addressed.

The Practice provided design, contract administration and CDM services as well as calfordseaden’s engineering consultancy addressing building services requirements arising from the client brief. As the work was carried out in a substantial and busy, occupied office building, careful planning and phasing was required to ensure the contract was completed safely whilst maintaining access to the office for staff throughout the contract programme.

The completion of the work resulted in a much more inviting and aesthetically attractive reception, whilst ensuring security to the premises was maintained and previous environmental issues were fully addressed. The resulting new reception provision is now considered to suitably reflect the corporate image of the client.
