The project was awarded to B&S following the provision of a robust tender proposal.
The contract was for the provision of a new office and client space for Geldards Law Firm in the Capital Quarter development area of Cardiff. The completed project included works to two floors (6th & 7th) which comprised of a mixture of office and client space and was carried out whilst the building remained occupied.

During the construction process the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer was to be launched and a ceremony was taking place within the building that we were refurbishing.
