ITV West Country News

Office Fit Out & Design for ITV West Country

Having worked on the fit out of the ITV Cymru Wales News offices in Cardiff Bay, we were appointed to refurbish the existing Bath Road Studios offices for ITV West Country News in Bristol.

Taking the same approach as the Cardiff offices, the working environment needed to be brought up to speed with ITV’s branding changes, incorporating their new colour scheme and becoming a more collaborative space for the 55 staff that worked there.

Working with both Wheelers Group LLP and the ITV West Country News team, the project would be completed over three phases, allowing for the minimum amount of disruption and ensuring that the offices were never shut down at any point.

All areas of the office were looked at, from edit suites and voice-over booths to dressing rooms, technical workshops and the main feature in the open-plan office space; a 4m-high media wall. Made up of six 60-inch smart TV screens, it displays ITV’s news coverage for the whole office to view, both upstairs and downstairs.

 

Project Duration: 32 Weeks
Contract Value: £727,000
Floor Area: 672 m2

Bristol is the most recent site to undergo a multi-million-pound investment, which includes the latest HD production technologies, allowing us to provide a great place to work. Previous positive experience of working closely with the ITV News management team was a deciding factor in our continued use of Paramount on this key project. Paramount was focused on ensuring that they delivered facilities of the highest quality, helping us to adopt a common theme, which is now present at all the News hub sites. We are pleased that the excellent relationship fostered with Paramount on a number of projects has continued to be a success.
