Nine Lanyon Place was the first Grade A office space to be constructed in Belfast following the historic signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998. This symbolism, coupled with the significance of NICS’s modern workforce consolidation, make this prestigious project stand out within the GRAHAM Facilities Management portfolio.
Works included modification and demolition to create new meeting rooms and to establish open plan office space, M&E works, including extensive rewiring, and the installation of copper backbone for data terminations throughout the building.
Door access and security system upgrades, plus extensive redecoration, were additional features of the brief. From the outset, we created a robust programme, which was monitored and reviewed on a consistent basis. If an unforeseen circumstance occurred, we immediately issued an Early Works Notice to ensure resolution at the earliest possible stage.
In addition, on receipt of CEs or revised design drawings, we scheduled their completion outside of normal working hours so as to maintain the original handover date.
Furthermore, trades were programmed for alternative floors and coordinated for different weeks to avoid any potential disruption due to a lack of workspace or manoeuvrability issues.
