Wales & West Housing

Project

Archway House, Cardiff

Project value

£3.4m | Time scale: 8 months

The client

Wales and West Housing Association is one of the leading Social Housing providers in Wales.

W&WHA manage more than 11,500 high quality, affordable homes in 15 local authority areas across the country. These include more than 3,000 dedicated properties for older people as well as innovative supported housing solutions for people with a range of particular needs.

The design brief

Bbi were engaged by the client with a specific brief to turn an existing 1990's building into a modern user friendly office space fit for nearly 200 members of staff. As well as the need to house a considerable amount of staff W&WHA also wanted the building to be environmentally friendly in terms of its energy consumption.

The design period was considerable and on-going during the refurbishment programme and we were instructed to use as many local suppliers and manufacturers as possible.

Project delivery

The mechanical and electrical installation for the building was very complex and this added to the duration of the job but both timescales and budgets were met.

75% of the work undertaken on the project was sourced from suppliers/manufacturers within a 50 mile radius of the project.
