Finance Wales

When Finance Wales decided to relocate from their existing office to a brand new one in Cardiff City Centre, they asked us to develop their concept design and office fit out for the new site.

Covering 3 floors of the Capital Quarter, they wanted a space that injected a burst of energy into the working day. The meeting suite on the 7th floor needed to be a showstopper with an executive, professional feel that made a lasting impression.

Finance Wales recognised that staff engagement was important in anticipation of the move to the new office. Staff input was therefore essential throughout the design and fit out process, in order to create an exciting and innovative working environment.



Reception area and meeting suite

On the seventh floor, Finance Wales wanted to make a lasting impression with their reception area and meeting suite. Here the featured colour was electric blue with a walnut veneer finish on all furniture, from the impressive reception desk and bespoke, integrated awards cabinet, to all the meeting rooms and the table in the boardroom. In order to create a link with the other floors, a few accent pieces of furniture with green upholstery were added around the space. The glass walls on every floor continued the square manifestation from floors 6 and 8, with the room numbers for the meeting suites highlighted in blue.


Project Duration: 13 weeks
Contract Value: £750,000
Floor Area: 2,060 m2

Working with Paramount was a pleasure from the start of the project through to the move date and beyond. In particular, I was impressed by the professionalism of the team who remained focused on delivering a great outcome for Finance Wales; their attention to detail and advice at each stage was extremely valuable and we had every confidence that we were in safe hands throughout the project.
