28 x the Height of Ben Nevis…

…or 38,913 metres, which is the amount of cabling we have laid for Royal London Group (RLG) in a major refurbishment of their Edinburgh offices at Thistle Street, Queen Street, Henderson Row and Henderson Place Lane.

Carried out over two and a half years, the project for the insurance giant has been enormous in scale as 1,433 staff were given new and improved working environments.

Here are a few more fun facts and statistics which give a sense of the scale of the project:

  • We laid 41,032 carpet tiles which is the equivalent of carpeting 1.5 football pitches!
  • We could have painted 400 cars with the 1,617 litres of paint we used!
  • We installed 2,318 lockers and 33 new meeting pods for collaboration

Kylie Barber, Project Manager for RLG said: “I’m very proud to be leading the Edinburgh Refurbishment project. The whole project team have worked extremely well together, from our third-party suppliers to our internal Facilities and IT teams. The flexible, pragmatic approach everyone demonstrated ensured that there was sufficient support across the whole team, enabling us to deliver a quality result within the tight deadlines. I’d like to thank everyone involved in the project for all their hard work and commitment.”
