5 Callaghan Square, Cardiff

5 Callaghan Square is a seven storey Grade A office building which holds a prominent position within Cardiff city centre. The client required an upgrade to the existing reception lobby that would appeal to modern occupiers. Our team was contracted for the refurbishment of the space.

A warm neutral colour palette has been utilised to demonstrate elegance as soon as you enter the multi-tenanted building. This is complimented by the fluted timber wall panelling and recessed feature signage and lighting which provides a touch of class to the new entrance point, providing a great first impression to visitors.

A bespoke leather upholstered ribbed circular seating has been added to the waiting area with soft feature lighting that makes the space comfortable and inviting.

The new signage gives the reception a stand-out look and feel.

All works were successfully carried out whilst the reception area was fully operational with staff and visitors using the main entrance to access all floors.

We found Craig and his site team great to work with from day one. Inevitably we changed the spec a number of times before and during the build and they were very professional and accommodating throughout. They were also very transparent with costs and flexible with item changes. All the finishes have been to a high standard and we are delighted with the results. They have worked safely during the Coronavirus outbreak and I am confident we will use Paramount Interiors again for our next project.
