LiveWest, Tolvaddon: Reception Desk & Canteen Fit-Out
Tolvaddon Energy Park, Camborne, Cornwall
Going one step further for a repeat client
Following the success of our Liverty Exeter project last year, RRW were invited to work with Brady Construction Ltd on the fit-out of LiveWest’s new offices for West Cornwall: LiveWest Tolvaddon. We worked on the front-end reception area and the staff catering facilities on a build that covered seven distinct spaces within the office.
For the reception project, we manufactured and installed a bespoke wraparound reception desk for the front lobby. The design matched the impressive lines and finishes of the Exeter office’s reception desk, but with a lot more countertop space and storage along the back wall.
Fit-out of Staff Canteen & Kitchenettes
The basic requirements for Tolvaddon’s canteen were very similar to the Exeter office; the client needed hard-wearing, hygienic materials and a DDA-compliant servery counter that could work well for a large team from a small footprint.
We also installed four distinct kitchenettes to act as tea points for the LiveWest office team. With white gloss cabinets reaching to the ceiling and grey gloss doors disguising integrated fridges and dishwashers, each kitchenette is practical, wheelchair-friendly and easy to keep tidy. We used Formica ® Infiniti Edge for the countertops; engineered to be durable, antimicrobial, stain-resistant and water-repellent, it’s a material that will keep each tea point looking its best for years to come.
Solid Oak Stairwell Capping
The Tolvaddon office was a brand new building, so we had a rare opportunity to put the client’s stamp on the communal service areas. For the stairwell, we fabricated an 800mm wide solid oak panel that flowed from the floor up to the ceiling.
The latest materials and manufacturing techniques
RRW has expanded since completing the Liverty Exeter project, and as part of this growth we’ve invested in the very latest shopfitting techniques and materials. Our workshop has doubled in size, and we’ve discovered a whole range of innovative new shopfitting materials. This means that, when it was time to start work on the LiveWest Tolvaddon job, we were able to deliver even higher standards of finish, utility and durability. We fabricated as much of the cabinetry offsite in our workshop, and elements like the Formica ® Infiniti Edge countertops, graphite gloss painted cabinet doors and solid oak capping on the stairwell will ensure that LiveWest will look its best for many years to come.
A coordinated installation on a busy site
With so many distinct spaces to work on, we had to liaise constantly with the main contractors, architects and designers throughout the build. The design and material choices we proposed had to be fit for purpose and future-proof, whilst the installation timeline for each of the seven distinct spaces had to line up with a much larger project plan. We manufactured cabinetry and countertops offsite in our Redruth workshop so that we could give our clients as much flexibility as possible when it came to installation.
Fully Equipped to Serve West Cornwall
With a state-of-the-art Front Desk & Servery, custom-built breakout areas with integrated appliances and a fresh, safe stairwell, the LiveWest Tolvaddon team can continue to support the whole of West Cornwall in comfort & style. We were delighted to support Brady Construction on such an important project for such a vital local service and we’re looking forward to seeing the space in action.
