Refurbishment of GMB Union Offices, Cardiff

This project involved the extensive refurbishment of the regional offices of the GMB union building on Newport Road, Cardiff. The 70 year old building required a much overdue facelift to be in keeping with its city centre location.

The construction work involved opening up the existing office space to form a modern, open plan, fully air conditioned office environment with new data installation together with the remodelling of the union’s debating chamber. The exterior of the building was overhauled and modernised with a combination of a protective rainscreen and stone cladding and the installation of new aluminium windows and doors and brise soleils.


The site, situated in the centre of Cardiff, necessitated a focused and fully co-ordinated management plan for all health & safety and access issues throughout the course of the scheme, in order to safeguard members of the public and ensure an efficient build proces.
