Armstrong Capital Quarter Case Study Dune Evo

Capital Quarter No4 is a new seven storey landmark development in the heart of Cardiff’s city centre. The development, along with its sister buildings No1, No2 and No3, replaces dilapidated industrial, warehouse and office buildings.

Property developers, JR Smart wanted to fit suspended ceiling systems into all 13 office spaces and central atrium, spanning across seven floors. The development required a ceiling tile that was ideal for every space. Calling on our Cardiff’s branch technical knowledge and expertise, Michael Parkin, Area Sales Executive at Nevill Long Cardiff, worked with the sub-contractor and Armstrong Ceiling Solutions to determine the best ceiling solution for the project.

The Dune eVo ceiling tiles that were specified in the project offered a cost-effective solution which surpassed the performance of rival brands, offering an all-round performance, unique colour options and ease of installation. Dune eVo ceiling tiles are designed to suit every space in every sector including transport, retail, hotels, workplaces and therefore fit the brief for the development.

The chosen ceiling system created an aesthetically pleasing design, complementing the central atrium and 13 modern open-plan offices.

Mark Turner, Area Sales Manager at Armstrong Ceiling Solutions said: “From the beginning, working with Nevill Long Cardiff has been a pleasure. Together, we have undertaken numerous site visits to liaise with JR Smart about expected delivery dates and draw down requirements. This allowed Armstrong to manufacture the complete 100,000m2 of material required for the first phase and meant Nevill Long could order in bulk for when the development required a stock of materials. The whole development took a very collaborative approach that continues to deliver results for all involved.”

Mike Parkin, Area Sales Executive at Nevill Long Cardiff said: “We pride ourselves on the service we provide in regard to our customers, including on-time deliveries, speedy response times and on-hand technical expertise. Working with likeminded suppliers such as Armstrong, who have been our key partner for nearly 60 years, ensures the customer receives consistent and top-class service from their Distributor of Choice.

Capital Quarter No4 provides 77,931sq ft of office space, a sixth floor roof terrace, under croft car & cycle parking, a ground floor breakout area and shower and locker facilities. The development was completed in May 2019 and is already being used as office space for some of the UK’s biggest brands.
