MSM were awarded the contract by the Progressive Building Society to construct a newbuild 8,000ft2 office building on an infill brownfield site in Wellington Street, Ballymena. The three-storey building provides new offices for the Ballymena branch of the Progressive Building Society and an adjacent ground floor retail unit.

The building is constructed on traditional reinforced concrete foundations with a structural steel frame, masonry infill cavity walling, composite metaldeck flooring to upper levels and precast concrete staircases. The building envelope is a combination of Rivendale fibre cement roofing slates to a pitched roof, zinc cladding to dormers, Trocal flat roofing to the rear elevations, K Rend coloured render and PPC aluminium glazing including shop fronts.
A complete interior fit-out, including full mechanical, electrical and lift installations, was completed as part of the contract.
