S4C, Yr Egin
We were appointed as office design and space-planning consultants to support S4C in the relocation of staff, existing furniture and equipment from their Cardiff headquarters to their new Yr Egin building in Carmarthen.
Since S4C was the first TV channel to be aimed specifically at a Welsh-speaking audience, being able to converse in both English and Welsh was a benefit. We were able to conduct meetings in both languages and, working with the client, produced a series of bilingual instruction sheets for the move.
S4C wanted to create a collaborative space plan which would encourage interactive working between staff. Acting as consultants and working with the main build contractor, we developed a concept layout to answer their brief.
As well as sourcing new office furniture, including desks and soft seating that complemented the existing furniture, we conducted a full furniture audit and condition survey. As a result, we were able to reuse and upcycle existing storage, meeting furniture and seating.
