Central Square is located adjacent to Cardiff central station and has desires to be the forefront of Cardiff’s business quarter. Companies such as BBC Cymru and Cardiff University already occupy some of the buildings in Central Square and it will soon be home to a state-of-the-art transport hub for Cardiff.
Bagnalls were tasked by Property Initiatives Limited to carry out repair works to 1 Central Square following flood damage. This office building is set over nine floors and totals 135,000 square feet.
The damage caused by water required minor repair works to the ceilings which included filling holes and cracks, then sanding back to a smooth finish, prior to painting with two coats of Crown Trade Matt Emulsion. The walls in the communal areas and lift lobbies were similarly prepared before applying two full coats of Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt Emulsion, in specified colours. In addition, we lightly sanded down the skirtings and door frames, then applied one full undercoat and one full coat of gloss to a Crown Trade specification.
To facilitate the buildings’ occupants and reduce any disruption caused, our decorating operatives worked out of hours, with a 4.30 pm start and a late finish. Our magic was worked so that by the time the office staff came back the next morning areas were fully dry and transformed with colour.
A sleek and contemporary project delivered on time and to specification.
