WorkSpace, part of McLaughlin & Harvey and based in Newtownabbey, will offer clients a range of services spanning build, fit-out, facilities management, bespoke joinery, and commercial furniture under one brand. 

Richard Cheevers, McLaughlin & Harvey Director, said, “WorkSpace provides a specialist option for what might be regarded as ‘smaller’ projects with a market-leading fit-out capability at its core, but also encompassing build, bespoke joinery, commercial furniture and hard facilities management services. We are delighted to have secured an order book of £12.7m across fit-out, build and facilities management, which is a testament to the hard work of our team and the appetite for our offering.

The new division is expected to create up to 20 new full-time permanent posts in year one, as well as opening up new opportunities for the company’s trusted supply chain. 

Its order book includes work on ITV’s Parliamentary Studios at Millbank, London; ongoing facilities management with M&S throughout the UK; a major FF&E project at a leading English University and a range of other Framework education schemes within Ireland and Scotland.
