In terms of significant clients, they don’t come much more high-profile than the Swedish parliament or Riksdag. The team at Gustafs worked directly with the property management team at the parliament to replace and repair the existing wood panels, which dated back to 1983 and were supplied by another manufacturer, when the whole building was renovated.
“The panels installed in the 1980s refurb were not of great quality and began to crack, some years after the installation, and sadly the supplier of those panels was no longer in business,” recalls Ove Andersson, Project Manager at Gustafs. This was especially problematic as the Chamber was featured on daily TV broadcasts
“It looked so bad that no close-ups were allowed!”.
The Chamber, also known as the plenary or ‘holy room’ is after all a place where the Riksdag holds debates and so the quality of fixtures and fittings should reflect this room’s importance in national life.
