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.

Major renovations for NI’s leading transport Hub.

Belfast Central Transport Hub undergos major renovations with the help of Cleary Contracting

Building attractive and high-quality passenger facilities played an important role in increasing the use of public transport, and that is exactly what Cleary Contracting has achieved on completion of this renovation.

Over 2.6 million passengers used the station last year, and this work will provide a new modern, more welcoming frontage to replace the current blast wall, enhancements to the ticketing area, improved retail/cafe offerings and the provision of a new Belfast Bike dock.

As well as supporting regeneration of the surrounding area the scheme is intended to attract more nearby employees to use public transport. Translink have been working very closely with local contractors Cleary Contacting Ltd to complete the renovation works.
