Standing tall at over 13 floors, the elegant Grade A, BREEAM ‘excellent’ building is Admiral Insurance Group’s new headquarters in the heart of Cardiff city centre.
The new office space has transformed the way Admiral functions by co-locating 3,000 staff into a single purpose-built facility. Open floor plans provide a flexible, communicative workplace, which can be changed to suit an evolving and changing business. Although developed for a single tenant, the large open-plan office spaces are designed to be fully flexible and sub-divisional with up to four separate tenancies.
Recognising the importance of employee well-being, the space contributes to staff satisfaction and performance. The building's amenities include a ‘get ready room’ for staff going on team and departmental nights out, parking for over 120 bicycles, showering facilities as well as a rooftop terrace.
Ty Admiral responds to Cardiff’s urban grid and occupies a whole city block. Embracing the local historical context, Ty Admiral connects key retail and leisure institutions within Cardiff’s commercial centre and creates a new commercial and business hub in the city. The active ground floor provides something unique for the Cardiff office market with shops, cafes, and restaurants – creating a lively meeting place for both the building users and the general public.
“Our philosophy at Admiral Group is that people who like what they do, do it better so we go out of our way to ensure coming to work here is enjoyable. We are proud to offer an honest and open culture, every member of staff is treated as an equal, achievement is rewarded and recognised and most of all, coming to work is fun.”
