Banbridge Council buildings


Civic Building set to serve the public for many years to come…

“The Civic Building is now on a par with other key council administrative buildings in the borough, which have been significantly enhanced as part of an ongoing modernisation programme.”

Among the many improvements are new double-glazed windows, external doors and ventilation and air-conditioning systems; electrical rewiring of the entire building; an upgrade of the heating system; creation of open plan, smaller offices and new meeting rooms; a new ramp and disabled parking spaces; an upgrade of the IT infrastructure; replacement of all ground floor ceilings; and new audio-visual equipment.

The Civic Building will accommodate some 75 staff working in Building Control, Community Planning, Environmental Health, Environmental Services, Estates and Asset Management and Registration.

The re-opening of the Civic Building has enabled other council buildings in the town to be reviewed.

In the coming weeks, Community Development staff will relocate to the Gate Lodge in Linenhall Street, while a number of support services along with Leisure, Events and Regeneration staff will be based at the Old Technical Building on Downshire Road.

Cleary Contracting was exceptionally proud to be a major part of these renovations.

We completed the works whilst the Credit Union remained open for business.  We initially formed a new opening onto the street and constructed a temporary banking screen.  We then removed all the existing fittings and fixtures within the existing banking hall.  The scope of the works involved internally forming new disabled toilet facilities, construction of new tellers positions, counters and screens, new MF ceilings and tiled floor throughout.  Full internal redecoration.  Externally we removed the old shop front, created larger windows, re-plastered the street elevation and completed the scheme with new back lit stainless steel signage.
