The Weaving Works building, formerly Armagh House linen warehouse, has undergone a major redevelopment bringing the historic building back to life. The iconic red brick warehouse was built in 1907 and had been used by Ridgeway & Co Linen and Damask Manufacturers up until the 1940s when it was converted into government offices, remaining in service until the early 2000s. The site has been vacant since, with several development proposals never making it to construction due to factors including the economic downturn. First Derivatives PLC, the financial software and consulting business now occupies the entire Grade A office space in the 30,000 sq ft property on Ormeau Avenue.

WKK Electrical Services were appointed by Space Contracts NI to carry out the electrical services fit-out to the office development. Electrical works involved the supply and installation of electrical services to all four levels of the historic building. General power installation, IT Cabling, access control, CCTV AND tv system installation and the testing and commissioning of all appliances. WKK completed the project within a 6 week program. The award winning RIBA scheme has been a huge regeneration success achieving full occupancy prior to completion and acting as a catalyst for regeneration in this important City Centre gateway location.
