Delivering a destination workspace for MCS Group
We are delighted to be delivering the office design and fitout on behalf of MCS Group, professional recruitment consultancy, in view of their upcoming move into The Ewart, Belfast.
Occupying 11,500 sq.ft. on the 10th Floor, the move to The Ewart will see the firm, that now employs 83 people in Northern Ireland and the US, double its office size, paving the way for the future growth of the business.
Commenting on the early engagement with MCS, Ronnie Crawford, Managing Director of Calibro, said: “Having worked closely with MCS Group over the last 5 years, it is a privilege to once again play our part in the ongoing growth and success of MCS Group, helping create a destination workspace that sets the platform for their next stage of growth.
Despite supporting them through many design tweaks to maximise capacity in their existing office, it became clear to Calibro that their existing office would struggle to support their growth plans beyond their lease break in 2023.
Through early staff-engagement, we quickly knew approximately what space they required to support their goals for the next 10 years. Once we collated all the data and knew the space requirements, Barry and Louise went out to the property market to see what was available and then relied on Calibro to support them on site-walks and test-fit designs to narrow down their options.
It became clear that The Ewart was the property that would best support MCS’ journey and make the best statement in this critical move on the journey of this company.
Having developed the design and now moving towards completion of the project on-site, we are looking forward to seeing months of thoughtful design and quality craftmanship come together.”
Barry Smyth, joint Managing Director of MCS Group, commented: “Everyone at MCS Group is excited to be moving into The Ewart in 2023. We feel that it is a deserved step forward and a key milestone in the business trajectory of the organisation.
“We have always aspired to set the highest standards for our industry and the quality of office space at The Ewart is totally in line with our ambitions. Doubling our office footprint will not only give us the space we need for the future growth we have planned but will also allow us to configure our offices to meet the needs of both our people and our customers.”
