Work Notes

The building I work in was featured on BBC Wales’ Dragon’s Eye TV programme last night. A 'furore' has blown up over apparently leaked plans for the Welsh Assembly Government to spend £42 million on the refurbishment of its main offices in Cathays Park.

This is just one of our 85 buildings across Wales and the world, but was described on TV last night as the biggest office block in Wales, as it houses more than 3,000 staff.

As the Beeb’s Betsan Powys says on her blog, the figures were reported to the Board back in December and are widely available to the world on WAG’s website. I don’t know any more detail than that report, but if anyone is in doubt of the need for at least some refurbishment needs to come and visit the office I work in, a windowless, soulless room more akin to a cave than an opulent office.

Here’s a link to the story on BBC news.

How can it be a souless room? It has you in it! The life and soul of any office - windowless or otherwise) :-)
