Gray Design On Growth Path After Contract Successes

Dynamic Architecture firm, Gray Design, have set their sights on future growth across key Belfast and Dublin markets after a sustained period of contract successes.

Barry Gray, who set up the business in 2005 with fellow Director Colin Dalton, said “Our team worked throughout lockdown as we were focused on delivering projects for our clients.   We strongly feel the outlook for the construction industry remains very positive.  We have been exceptionally busy during 2020 as businesses continue to invest”.

Some of our recently completed commissions include the new KFC Restaurant and Drive-Thru at the Gateway site beside the Boulevard Outlet Park.  This is one of series of projects we have been involved with at the Banbridge complex over several years.  Gray Design have a long-standing relationship with the Lotus Group, who manage the Boulevard Complex”.
The partnership extends to another major retail and leisure destination centre, The Junction, situated close to Antrim Town Centre which is also owned by the Lotus Group.  As part of a £30m redevelopment, Gray Design have worked with global brands including McDonald’s, Nando’s and Starbucks.

A new Modern Tyres Depot in Dargan Crescent, Belfast was also handed over during the summer.  The impressive facility includes an eight bay workshop and office space.

Barry Gray, who is well known in football circles as he currently manages Warrenpoint Town in the Irish Premiership, added “In particular, within retail and leisure, there is a growing need to deliver an exceptional visitor experience to attract consumers.   An inspiring design can really help and we work closely with clients to achieve their vision. This includes cleaver use of both indoor and outdoor space”.

Colin Dalton, Director, commented “Over the last 15 years, we have been very fortunate in the people we employ are very focused on detail. We take the time to understand our client’s needs from the initial brief to feasibility study before our team create innovative design concepts.  We place a place a high value on our relationships.  We get positive feedback about having one point of contact and our flexible approach”.
