Haley Sharpe has won an award for its in-store design work on Cardiff’s flagship Tourist Information Centre, at the Cardiff County Council Lord Mayors Civic Awards Scheme 2000.
The Leicester consultancy won the category for the development which best addresses the needs of disabled people or other special needs groups. The award will be presented in April.
Having completed the award-winning first stage of the project last summer, Haley Sharpe is to begin work on the second stage next month.
Among new features to be incorporated is a temporary exhibition area. It will initially recount the story of Welsh rugby with artefacts and information panels, though the facility will be adaptable to carry material about other subjects in the future.
Haley Sharpe partner Andy Sharpe says: “The inclusion of 24-hour information facilities through exterior touch screen stations will be complemented by projector screens that lower from ceiling voids.
“Operated by sequence timers, this facility will allow for out-of-hours promotional footage to be viewed from the street and [it will also] provide the opportunity for vendor-funded footage to be considered,” he says.
