CARRICKFERGUS based McCue Crafted Fit has been awarded the fit out contract of the new Lush shop in Belfast’s City Centre. The fresh handmade cosmetics giant is relocating to bigger premises and will see it become the brand’s largest shop in Northern Ireland.
Work on the 10-week project commenced last week and will see the Castle Lane site, which is adjacent to the brand’s current premises, transformed into a fresh new store that will be in keeping with Lush’s sustainability guidelines.
Speaking about the project, Managing Director of McCue Crafted Fit, Les McCracken said, “We are delighted to fit out the new Lush store in Belfast. Having worked with Lush for many years throughout the UK, it’s good to be able to showcase our work for this brand, and our expertise, in Northern Ireland.
“As with all of our customers, we have built an excellent relationship with the team at Lush; this is fundamental to working with our clients and in each project we take a fresh approach and we’re not afraid to do things differently. This is a good project for Belfast and we look forward to our work with Lush in our home city.”
This Lush project follows on from McCue’s work on their award winning London flagship shop on Oxford Street, which saw the fit out of 9500 sq. ft. spanning an impressive three floors and featuring a spa, complete with four treatment rooms. That project went on to win Interior of the Year and Non Food Design of the Year at the UK Retail Week Interior Awards.
McCue has also worked with the brand at their customer care office in Poole, as well as their Bournemouth store.
Lush is famous for their fresh handmade products and their dedication to sustainability and environmentally friendly practices. Since opening in Poole in 1995, the brand has grown exponentially with over 900 stores in 49 countries.
