Kingspan Supplies
Flooring For Admiral
Insurance Group HQ
Kingspan Access Floors is supplying nearly
19,000 sq m of raised flooring to the Admiral in-
surance group’s new headquarters in the centre
of Cardiff.
The 11-storey headquarters, being de-
veloped by Stoford, are due to be completed
in summer 2014. Sir Robert McAlpine Limited
is the main contractor and the project is being
funded by Union Investment Real Estate GmbH.
Admiral Group employs 2,000 people across
three sites in Cardiff. The new headquarters
will enable the group to bring all those staff
into one building, and there is the capacity to
accommodate a total of 3,000 people.
Kingspan began installing its RG3, RMG
and FDEB38 floor panels in October and installation is scheduled
to take 20 weeks.
The building will have very low CO2 emissions and will meet the BREEAM ‘excellent’
standard of environmental sustainability and energy efficiency.
Large expanses of glass will allow as much natural daylight as possible onto every floor,
and there will be 120 underground car parking spaces. A walkway running down the west
side of the building will feature public cafes and restaurants.
