Cardiff Modular Success

Project Summary

The project involves the design and installation of a permanent office building in Cardiff. As part of the initial design discussions, Loc Hire suggested the Containex Plus Line Range, renowned for its flexibility, modularity, and compliance with stringent building regulations. The office building will be fully compliant with building regulations and equipped with essential fire-rated features.

Building Design

The Loc Hire office building will consist of a 10-bay Plus Line specification. The floor plan dimensions are 12,233mm by 7,335mm, providing ample space for office activities. This specification includes a POD staircase, ensuring safe and easy access between floors.

The Loc Hire design will integrate an L1 Fire Alarm system that will be linked to an adjacent building, providing a high level of fire detection and safety. The L1 system is the most comprehensive category of fire alarm system, designed to detect fires at the earliest possible stage and provide the fastest response to ensure occupant safety.

Extras and Customisations

In addition to the standard specifications, Loc Hire’s design team accommodated several extra feature requests to enhance the functionality and comfort of the office building:

  • Onsite Installation of Additional Kitchens: Multiple kitchens will be installed throughout the office space to cater to the needs of staff, providing areas for meal preparation and breaks.
  • Onsite Installation of Floor Tiles: High-quality floor tiles will be installed to ensure a durable and aesthetically pleasing finish. This includes tiles that are both functional and contribute to the overall interior design of the office space.
  • Onsite Installation of Fire Rated Office Blinds: To complement the fire safety measures, fire-rated office blinds will be installed. These blinds will not only provide necessary shading and privacy but also enhance the building’s overall fire resistance.
