• Welshpool to benefit from new flagship NFU Mutual branch in town centre
  • NFU Mutual Welshpool make home in new larger office at 20 Church Street
  • Doors to NFU Mutual Welshpool officially open for insurance, investments and pensions

NFU Mutual's Welshpool team are delighted to officially move into their new, larger commercial office in the heart of Welshpool at 20 Church Street.

After 6 years at its former office in Puzzle Square, the opportunity arose for the business to expand and take up the larger space located on the main route way through the town – where the old Spar use to be located.

Senior Agent at NFU Mutual Welshpool, Stephen Kenyon said; “We had outgrown our existing premises so were looking for a larger office space. Our new office at 20 Church Street is superb, making us a flagship branch. As soon as our clients walk in their attention is grabbed by the eye catching feature wall, large open space and sophisticated features and look. The project has been in planning for almost 2 years and now I’m thrilled to announce the doors are officially open for business.”

Planned Office Interiors were tasked with the 12 week project to renovate the existing 290sqm ground floor space at 20 Church Street, to create a large, modern and airy office space which now includes a conference room, four private offices and a large kitchen area with storage space. The building was completely stripped out to bare brick, concrete floor and roof joists and the project was a complete fit-out with structural work, decoration, carpeting, heating, lighting, air conditioning, plumbing and a few special features such as intelligent lighting which allows the lighting to be controlled via wi-fi from an iPad. There is also LED strip lighting to illuminate the stunning feature wall to capture attention of traffic passing by.

Stephen Kenyon adds; “Our new branch provides us with exciting opportunities and now with a dedicated conference room, private meeting space and large open plan reception area - we will be able to host more events, seminars and workshops for our policyholders and NFU members. We encourage people to drop in for a chat – we’d love to show you around. You’ll find us right in the heart of Welshpool, at 20 Church Street.”

Richard Simpson, Director of Planned Office Interiors, said: “We’ve been delighted to work with NFU Mutual over the last 20 years on several of their most important projects. This most recent project, which was a complete fit out of their latest NFU Mutual branch based in Welshpool, has been another great job for our team to design and create for them. This project allowed us to bring in lots of nice design features, from an intelligent lighting system which can be controlled via wi-fi, to an LED strip light system. We used this system to illuminate the stunning feature wall of the iconic Powis Castle, which creates an amazing focal point from the moment you enter their building.

“We’re extremely pleased with the end result and our team look forward to working with NFU Mutual again on their next building project.”

An official open event is being planned to launch the new premises for NFU Mutual Welshpool. This will take place on 20th July 2017. As details for the event are confirmed, an invitation will be extended out to policyholders, local businesses and residents.
