The new reception area boasts an illuminated purple backdrop behind a coloured Corian desk.

A dedicated waiting area where LED lights and flat screens set the tone for the presentations ahead.


Visitors and staff see customer centre in a new light
after refurbishment

10 June 2014

Alcatel‐Lucent’s customer centre in Maidenhead, Berkshire, underwent an overhaul at the end of last year when the global communications firm hired Surrey‐based office design and refurbishment company, Cannon Davis, to create a cutting‐edge new facility. The busy, 5000 square metre building was transformed over 15 carefully co‐ordinated phases, allowing business to continue as usual throughout the project.

A new reception and fully glazed atrium have created a modern, open feel where visitors could see the sheer size of the operation during the work, carefully‐positioned corporate graphics provided privacy when presentations were underway. New stretch ceilings were installed to conceal the building’s old recesses with LED strip lights providing cool illumination. Complementary LED strips were incorporated into the glazing framework behind the new reception desk to create an illuminated purple backdrop, with further strips concealed in a tiny aluminium extrusion, washing the walls with a coloured glow. The ambient lighting and plush fittings continue in a waiting area for potential customers. The LED strip and spot lighting and high‐frequency florescent fittings were all selected with energy efficiency very much in mind.

The main presentation suite can be divided with an electrically operated central divider driven by a purpose‐made control desk which enables up to 80 guests to view displays on huge, flat screens and enjoy surround sound audio. The adjacent management offices benefit from fully glazed, double thickness partitions for additional privacy, enhanced by acoustically absorbing carpets and ceilings to keep delicate negotiations confidential.

Illuminated 'Stretch' Ceilings that won't overstretch
the budget!

Any Shape, Any Size, Any Angle


Faced with the problem of existing recessed coffers with yellowing flouro tubes and unreliable low voltage spotlights, we designed a "smooth" solution!

Replacing the light source with long life LED tape, we completely filled the openings with translucent stretch ceilings, backlit to provide a cool, even, daylight glow.

Quick and clean to install overnight in a carefully phased programme, the results are stunning yet contemporary. Just like the rest of the reception area!
