Trafford Council

The Council decided in 2010 to move out of Trafford Town Hall and temporarily relocate to Quay West Trafford Park.

They then totally refurnished the Town Hall and built a new two storey open plan building. The total accommodation was to provide 750 work stations for 900 staff. In addition to work stations we were to provide a restaurant, cafe, council chamber, soft seating / breakout furniture and meeting room furniture. Total value of scheme was £26 million.

Stakeholders Engaged
We worked with the Councils Transformation Team, 5 Plus Architects, Sheppard Construction and our supplier base. We were involved with all department stakeholders, and consulted with them extensively during the build.

Objectives / Challenges
The Councils objective was to provide a building that would serve the public, the Councillors and it’s staff in a modern design, that would enable them to take advantage of new ways of working including hot desking and hoteling.

The challenge was to achieve this in a building that had ‘listed’ status.

The Finished Project
We were able to deliver a fully furnished and functioning building on time, providing a pleasing environment to work in allowing the Council to achieve its aim of adopting new ways of working with 750 workstations supporting 900 staff. This enabled the Council to close 3 further buildings.
