Catalyst Inc. Concourse III Successfully Handed Over

Catalyst Inc. (formerly known as the Northern Ireland Science Park) was successfully handed over a few weeks ago and has now been officially opened by the Duke of York as of this week. Michael Nugent Ltd provided a full category A mechanical fit-out for this project which will be an excellent addition to NI’s rapidly expanding science & technology sector.


Concourse III forms the third instalment of Concourse buildings at Catalyst Inc. Spanning across three buildings at 5 storeys each – and at 150,000 squared foot in size – Concourse III offers numerous state-of-the-art offices, laboratories, catering and conference facilities. This Concourse development represents a total investment of over £20M, and the opening of Concourse III has added a further 55,000 sq.ft. of net lettable space to the Belfast campus.

The £6.5M development marks a major investment by Catalyst Inc, which currently has 160 tenants employing 2,600 knowledge workers across the Belfast and Derry/Londonderry campuses, and will accommodate a further 500 knowledge based jobs. The building is already 90% allocated with companies such as existing fast growing tenants Nanthealth, GTT, Display Note, Philips and Novosco along with new tenants including ProAxsis and O4 Research.

With suites ranging from 2,500 to 11,000 sq.ft., the building is constructed to a high specification including a web enabled building management system and incorporating a number of energy efficiency measures. The flexibility of the design has enabled wet lab facilities to be accommodated alongside technology workspace.
