Following a successful design competition for the US software company Concentrix, Isherwood + Ellis were appointed to develop major new office facilities on the site of the former Maysfield Leisure Centre. The redevelopment of Maysfield delivered a transformational project within a landmark site & enabled Concentrix to rationalise their Estate and 1000 staff dispersed across 3 office sites in Belfast.
The I+E concept saw the retention & comprehensive refurbishment of the existing 3–storey envelope that previously housed Major & Minor Sports Halls, Swimming Pool, Gymnasium, Changing Rooms & associated accomm. I+E’s unique approach to buildability & added value increased the Client target of 1100 desks to a total of 1500 desks within the same overall building footprint. The former first floor pool slab was removed to realize an additional floor plate and a large IT Data Centre was provided to meet the facility’s status as Concentrix’s new European HQ in Belfast.
