Case Studies

Kings Park House, Office fit-out


We were approached by Cortex, the world leaders in Intelligent Automation Software, as they needed to expand their office space. Our remit was to produce a space that incorporates an open plan office for 36 users, three meeting rooms of varying sizes, a comms room and a breakout space with fully fitted kitchen.


Durabilis constructed insulated stud partition walls to create: Two large and one small meeting rooms, one comms room for the data cabinet and one dividing wall between the kitchen area and open plan office.

We installed glass walls: To divide the breakout area and open plan office, to separate the sales area from the rest of the office.

We added insulation above all meeting rooms and along wall lines installed two floor boxes under each bank of desks and one in each meeting room, installed all power and data cables to the floor boxes and to high level points for screens and decorated all new walls including feature coloured walls in the meeting rooms.

We used lay wood effect vinyl to the kitchen area and carpet tiles to all other floors and installed a fully integrated kitchen with breakfast bar.

Finally, we installed venetian blinds to all windows.

Splash Displays supplied and installed manifestations and graphics to the client’s design.

Food for thought canteen



Our task was to refurbish the existing canteen area by removing an existing store room in one corner to make the area much larger. We then removed existing stud partitions and re-installed new ones to increase the size of the wash up area.

The work involved: supply and installation of new carpet tiles, vinyl and Amitco floor throughout, suspended ceiling alterations, decoration to the whole space, installation of white Rockwall cladding, new pendant lighting and electrical amendments, manufacture and installation of bespoke joinery items and plumbing alterations.

Jubilee House Refresh


For this project we were commissioned to complete a total redecoration of Jubilee House over three floors. The extensive work included removing and re-carpeting over 3,000 square metres in a live office environment, as well as supplying and installing new canteen furniture, a glass manifestation and coffee point alterations including plumbing, electrical works and bespoke joinery. The project was undertaken over 6 consecutive weeks and evenings.

DBL comments: this project was always going to be demanding, recarpeting underneath in excess of 400 desks in a live office environment without any client disruption. The success of this project is a testament to our team and their hard work in terms of precise project management and delivery. Both our client and us were extremely satisfied with the outcome of this challenging project.
