Danske Bank headquarters revamped

By Margaret Canning

Co Antrim firm McCue Crafted Fit has carried out a major refurbishment of Danske Bank's headquarters in Belfast in a project worth a six-figure sum.

The bank is adapting its listed Donegall Square West headquarters for the future, and earlier this year announced that it had let its third floor to accountancy firm Grant Thornton.

McCue worked with Todd Architects and design company 1080 to transform the rest of the property still in use by the bank.

The four-month project included a new front entrance.

McCue Crafted Fit managing director Les McCracken said: "This project is particularly significant for the company as it highlights McCue's cross-sector capabilities. It draws upon both our office and retail fit out experience as well as highlighting our ability to fit out in a live environment, ensuring minimal disruption whilst works were carried out."

And he said the company had sought to respect the building's history as an early example of 1970s brutalist architecture, while bringing the inside up to date.

"McCue provided a complete office fit-out of the ground, mezzanine, first and fifth floors in the building."
