Temple Point Bristol is a landmark commercial building located in the heart of the Temple Quarter in Bristol.

The Brief

PBC was appointed to provide Project Management, Cost Consultancy and Employer’s Agent services for the CAT B refurbishment of three floors of the building for a blue-chip client who wanted a more flexible style of working to accommodate a range of work settings for their teams.  The new 32,920 sq.ft. of  workspace needed to offer a modern environment with collaborative areas, formal meeting rooms, open meeting booths and focused zones.

The fit-out included a stylish and contemporary reception area with bespoke joinery, lounge seating and laptop tables, as well as areas in the open plan space to accommodate collaborative project work.

Within each of the office spaces, glazed and solid partition systems were built and tea points and breakout areas were also created on each floor.  Specialist ceiling acoustics were added to reduce the noise levels and to stop the noise travelling across the large open space. The entire space was redecorated with specialist wallcoverings and new flooring and furniture was installed.

Alterations and additions were also made to the mechanical, ventilation, lighting and FA systems as well as new data cabling, AV and CCTV access and control systems.

The project, which was administered under a FIDIC short-form contract, was completed on budget and on programme, and the client is now enjoying their stylish new office space in the city twice voted as the best place to live and work in Britain.
