- ECE met the requirements of a complex brief whilst working within a tight budget to deliver a high quality design with maximum impact.
- The client benefited from a full service including a contract administration role under a traditional procurement with hands-on assistance and guidance through the tender and construction process.
- The completed project was shortlisted for Retrofit awards as a result of the high quality of design.
ECE were appointed by Guildford Borough Council to provide design, contract administration and project management for the refurbishment of Millmead House, located in a conservation area in Guildford Town Centre.
This project is of high community significance, being the principal location where the residents of Guildford can engage with their borough council. The new public spaces that are being provided meet a very wide range of community requirements from formal council meetings to delicate adjudications with a range of parties and professional advisers.
The project consists of the reorganisation of reception and the refurbishment of the council chamber and committee rooms, councillor’s rooms and canteen along with lighting upgrades throughout. The design brief was to provide a striking design that looks towards the commercial world for inspiration while providing excellent community engagement possibilities at all levels.Share this
