New Belfast offices planned for PwC

December 9, 2018 by  

The consultancy company Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC) has announced that it is planning to move from its current Belfast base to a more central location.

The company will be moving to brand new offices in the heart of Belfast, with the chosen site being Merchant Square. The firm is presently based in offices at the Waterfront Plaza, from which it employs approximately 2,000 people. This makes it one of the city’s major employers and the move looks set to create more jobs at the company.

In announcing the planned move, the firm stated that its future intentions in the area meant that a bigger office space would be needed in the coming years. The complex at Merchant Square is undergoing development by Gareth Graham, a local businessman.

Once all of this work has been completed, the site will offer nine floors of luxury office space totalling more than 200,000 sq. ft. and providing room for over 3,000 workers. Companies changing locations often turn to printing services to help update their business cards.

PwC Northern Ireland chair, Paul Terrington, told BBC News:

“We will continue to grow in local, national and international markets from Belfast, drawing on the technology skills emerging from our schools, universities and colleges.”

The company is scheduled to move into its new space during the summer of 2020.
