The NFU Welshpool Project
NFU Mutual offer a wide range of personal, business and farming insurance, investment and financial services nationally for businesses. NFU Mutual have an ongoing programme of fit outs for new branches and refurbishment of existing branches with Planned Office Interiors fully managing the projects. Komfort’s product offerings are included in the standard specification for these fit-outs and refurbishments.
To support the expansion of the business, the Welshpool NFU agency was relocated to a larger commercial office space in the heart of the city. The new office space took up 290sqm on the ground floor.
The Brief in Brief
This project involved a complete refurbishment of NFU Mutual’s flagship building in Welshpool. Planned Office Interiors were contracted to completely refurbish the existing offices in 12 weeks to create large, modern and airy office spaces. The full scope of work included a conference room, three private offices and a large kitchen area. Additionally, to meet this dynamic brief Planned Office Interiors needed to incorporate structural work, partitioning, decoration, carpeting, heating, lighting, air conditioning, plumbing and bespoke office furniture.
Komfort’s Products Installed
Planned Office Interiors installed Komfort’s Polar double-glazed partitions throughout the project. Komfort’s double glazed Polar’s simplistic method of installation, demountability and powerful acoustic properties made it an intelligent option for this fit-out. The bubble joint and discreet mullions, or ‘ghost posts’, and framework of double glazed Polar combines contemporary aesthetics, elegance and durability.
Komfort’s Komfire 75 was installed by Planned Office Interiors for this project due to its distinct angular partitioning which incorporates both design and tremendous acoustic and fire performance. Komfire is a steel stud and plasterboard construction surrounded by an aluminium framework.
The end result
Stephen Kenyon, Senior Agent at NFU Mutual Welshpool, praised Planned Office Interiors by saying “The new office makes us a flagship agency, and as soon as clients walk in their attention is grabbed by the eye-catching feature wall, large open space and sophisticated look and feel. We’re extremely pleased with the end result and can’t wait to officially move in.”
We are proud to have our products installed on this stunning project that Planned Office Interiors have created. Planned Office Interiors have designed offices which provide contemporary, modern and extraordinary spaces for employees and guests.
