The leading interior fit-out contractor, which has offices in Hillsborough and Belfast, had previously delivered two bespoke tenant fit out schemes at the Lanyon Place property on behalf of “big four” firm, KPMG. The most recent KPMG project, whose staff occupy 40,000 sq ft of the building, concluded in August 2021.

Weeks later, the Soloist Building’s owners, Capital London, commissioned GRAHAM to transform the redundant space on the ground floor with the aim of securing 100% full occupancy.

Over the course of the intensive programme, ‘move in ready’ office space, inclusive of two 7,000 sq ft suites, was created to the highest standards, with each suite now consisting of approximately 80 workstations. It also houses bespoke informal meeting pods, premium breakout space and collaboration areas as well as three dedicated meeting rooms and two large break out areas.
