The award-winning company was appointed as fit-out contractor at Merchant Square, which will see the creation of 200,000 sq ft of Grade A office space over nine floors, exclusively let by PwC. The office space is set to be one of the most advanced digital spaces in the city.

Gilbert-Ash Managing Director Ray Hutchinson said the company is delighted to be working on one of the most prestigious projects to be undertaken in Belfast in recent years.

He said, “It is always great to be working on a landmark building in our home city of Belfast, but this is extra special as Merchant Square really will be a leader on the international stage. We have been working with excellent local partners to bring this stand out fit-out project to life, with advanced logistical planning and management during what has been a challenging year for many industries, including construction.”
