H&J Martin Construction & Fit Out, part of Lagan Specialist Contracting Group, undertook the fit out works to facilitate the relocation of the existing Belfast Welcome Centre (BWC) and Belfast Visitor & Convention Bureau (BVCB) to new premises in Belfast City Centre.
This project required significant adaptation to meet the future needs of the BVCB and BWC. At basement level a kitchen facility was created and storage areas using the existing layout. At ground floor level the existing banking hall was converted into the new Welcome Centre. This required the removal of existing internal division and finishes and their replacement with a high quality layout.
High quality communication, information and display technologies including video walls, interactive displays, self-service ticket kiosks, interactive tables/touch screen PCs, hand held devices and media walls were all included.
The existing ramped access at the entrance was replaced. The ground floor fitted out to a high standard and includes internal and external signage, graphic materials, counters, literature, information and retail displays. Mechanical and electrical services were also all replaced or upgraded throughout as appropriate.
