New Premises coming soon

We have purchased the old 'Bank of Ireland' building on Antrims High Street. It has been a very long journey thus far. We first started the bidding process around Easter time 2017 and it took up until November to finally get all the documentation signed.

Then we employed an architect to make up suitable drawings to take the project forward, unfortunately our architect had a motoring accident in mid-winter when he actually broke bones in his neck, putting him out of actime for a time.

However the drawings were completed and we made our submissions to 'Building 'Control' on July 11th 2018, having already received planning permission earlier.

After building control made a few queries that were successfully answered we received their approval at the end of July.

This week, beginning Monday 13 August 2018 we have an advert in the situations vacant in the Antrim Guardian seeking an Office Manager.

We also have three qoutes in place and these will be put to our board members on Wednesday 15 August.

If we get board approval then we would hope to make contact with the preferred bidder by the beginning of week beginning 20 August 2018 and get all the contract issues sorted out.

With luck work will get underway possibly around the end of August and we expect a completion date sometime in November.

We could well be in our brand new premises for Christmas 2018.
