Vodafone calls on Colorcoat for the new Stoke centre

2 December 2011 No Comment

Mobile telecom giant Vodafone has rung in the changes with a new call centre that’s not only state-of-the-art on the outside but gives its employees plenty of room to talk inside.

The new Vodafone call centre, by architects RPS, is designed to allow maximum flexibility for the network. The open-plan, spacious interior – the size of seven 5-a-side football pitches – ensures employee teams can easily communicate despite the huge 925-person capacity of the building.

Building tailored to match and complement company branding

Stretching a massive 45 metres wide, the futuristic, curved outline of the 94,500sq ft building is dramatically emphasised with the use of both Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® and Colorcoat Prisma® pre-finished steel ranges on the exterior.

To achieve the necessary look befitting one of the biggest global companies in an industry that’s constantly evolving, the roof is clad in Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® in Goosewing Grey for maximum durability, complemented by Colorcoat Prisma® in Silver Metallic on the walls which achieves a striking, eye-catching contrast to the red of Vodafone’s logo.

And the result certainly doesn’t leave employees hung up, giving them an inspiring workplace reflecting Vodafone’s forward-thinking approach to working environments. Inside the building – the shell of which is completely recyclable – workers enjoy a relaxing café, a shop and red-themed breakout ‘pods’ which contain fully-fitted kitchen areas, seating and vending machines.

Vodafone’s green commitment

Active lifestyles are promoted with the provision of showers and changing facilities for those cycling to work or exercising in their lunch hours, and in keeping with Vodafone’s green commitment rainwater is recycled to flush toilets as Colorcoat Prisma® is WRAS approved and the use of electric lighting is kept to a minimum with a daylight-controlled lighting system.

Necessary look befitting one of the biggest global companies

Both Colorcoat Prisma® and Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® offer a spectrum of shades ensuring any building can be tailored to match and complement company branding, and the entire Colorcoat® range has the reassurance of BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing Certification.

With unrivalled durability, colour retention and corrosive resistance, backed up by the unique Confidex® Guarantee for complete peace of mind, using Colorcoat® pre-finished steel was the right call for this telecoms project.
