Darlington DFE - Willmott Dixon


Sector: Business & Industry

What we did: New Coffee Bar Counter

Darlington Borough Council, appointed Willmott Dixon Construction as main contractor for a new-build development for the DFE, abutting the Town Hall building. As the contract was nearing completion, DBC requested a refurbishment of the original reception area of the Town Hall building, which had not been updated since its opening by HRH Princess Anne in May 1970. Willmott Dixon enlisted the services of Space Design Associates to create an open-plan staff breakout space, with a modern and contemporary feel.

The refurbishment, over two floors, comprised a full strip-out of the space, new security enabled powered swing doors; new carpeted flooring over the original stone tiles to create a feeling of ‘warmth’, a complete redecoration, new feature energy efficient LED lighting, new low energy heating system, bespoke shop fitting including Oak paneled reception desk and LED illuminated screens and graphics panels towalls and windows.
