08 Jun McCue Banks Refurbishment of Danske Headquarters
MCCUE Crafted Fit has secured a further contract to refurbish more of Danske Bank’s flagship building at Donegall Square West in Belfast City Centre.
The contract comes 14 months after McCue put the final touches to their NI Headquarters in the listed building, a project that included the refit of office space, a new front entrance for employees and a new staff access location (see photograph). McCue has also undertaken various works for a number of the bank’s regional branches around Northern Ireland.
Les McCracken, Managing Director at McCue Crafted Fit said, “We’re very pleased to return to Danske Bank for the fit out of their flagship branch following previous successful projects for the bank. It starts this month, June 2018, so, it will be great to be back working in Donegall Square West in Belfast’s city centre.
“McCue works across many sectors, and projects like this, draws upon both our office and retail fit out experience, as well as highlighting our ability to fit out in a live environment.”
Aisling Press, Head of Branch Banking at Danske Bank said: “Over the past year, we’ve invested in the refurbishment of a number of our regional branches, with a new design, layout and improved services that better meet the needs and expectations of today’s consumers and businesses.
“The customer and community feedback has been really positive, so we’re taking the very best of all of the previous refurbishments and adding some new features.
“The branch will have a modern and welcoming look and feel, a new coffee area and plenty of open space for interacting with customers or holding events, enabling us to open the space up for the local community we are a part of.
“We will be providing even more self-service options, alongside the human touch from our people which makes a real difference to the overall customer experience. Our dedicated staff will be on hand to ensure that our customers experience a warm and welcoming environment and to help and guide them when they visit the branch.
“We can’t wait to unveil the new branch to our customers, and in the meantime will be working hard to minimise any disruption and maintain the high levels of service our customers expect.”
Danske Bank’s Headquarters is based within the well-known City Centre landmark which was built in 1972 and is seen as a building of historic and architectural importance.
