East Belfast firm kit out luxury suite at Wembley

By Margaret Canning

An east Belfast company has finished work on an exclusive members' club at England's national stadium.

Fit-out firm Portview and KSS Design Group in London have recently completed work on One Twenty at Wembley Stadium.

One Twenty was unveiled on Sunday as members attended the FA Community Shield between Arsenal and Chelsea.

Simon Campbell, managing director of Portview, which employs around 80 people from its base at Florenceville Avenue, said it was its latest high-end stadium contract.

"We've already carried out work at Emirates Stadium and the London Stadium at Stratford, so we have good credentials in this field, and were put forward as one of the contractors by the design team for One Twenty," he said.

"It was a competitive process but we were able to convince them of our credentials.

"One Twenty is a very expensive offering and it's restricted to 120 members."

The company's staff had been working on the club since November last year.

Features of One Twenty include an oversized angular canopy at the entrance, along with an illuminated staircase and "double store smoked oak panelled wall".

The bar area features a "spectacular brass chandelier".

In its results for 2016, Portview's parent company Portview Holdings reported pre-tax profits of £3m on sales of £40m.
