BOF Supply Cardiff's Central Square

Thursday, 20 September, 2018

The Central Square development is one of the biggest changes Cardiff – and Wales – has ever seen. BOF are pleased to be supplying both the BBC and JOMEC this year! In addition to the 130,000 sq ft office for law firm Hugh James and the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, Central Square also includes a new £120m headquarters for BBC Cymru Wales, a new 270,000 sq ft public sector hub for the UK Government, and a new bus station for the capital. By 2020 our capital city will look completely different.

Three Central Square is the site for the new headquarters of BBC Cymru Wales, a Foster & Partners designed building over 5 storeys totalling 180,000 sq ft which ISG Construction handed over to the BBC in April 2018 and will be fully occupied and operational in 2019.

We are extremely proud to be the chosen furniture supplier for all Desking, Task Chairs, Soft Seating and Tables throughout Three Central Square for BBC Wales.

Our Project team have been collaborating with Sheppard Robson (ID:SR), Currie & Brown, J4 Projects and our supply chain to finalise product specification, finishes and furniture layouts. We are also working with Overbury to co-ordinate deilveries and installation later this year.

We have recently completed the installation of loose furniture across three floors of Two Central Square for Cardiff University's School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies (JOMEC). The full case study is available here.

John Tovey, Contracts Manager at BOF commented “These contract awards were great news for BOF, reinforcing the existing strong contractual relationships with such prestigious clients and exemplifying the benefits of applying long term experience and knowledge to achieve client aspirations associated with these nationally important iconic developments."

These projects follow BOF successfully being appointed as the sole furniture supplier to Welsh Government, National Assembly for Wales, the National Procurement Service (NPS) and Rank 1 furniture supplier on the North East University Purchasing Consortium (NEUPC) which is the largest higher education furniture framework in the UK.
