Ormeau Baths co-working space re-opens with new safety procedures

  • The Ormeau Baths co-working space in Belfast has officially re-opened, but people using the space must take extra precautions.

    When non-essential businesses across the UK were ordered to close their doors and the country entered lockdown, Belfast's Ormeau Baths co-working space shut its doors. The space is normally home to some of the city's most promising emerging tech start-ups, which have largely moved to working from home.

    The building is home to the Pixel Mill game development incubator run by Northern Ireland Screen, the Digital Catapult immersive tech lab, and the Ignite tech investment accelerator. Its event space is also used for hundreds of events and meetups throughout the year, many of which have moved into new online formats since the lockdown began.

    As Northern Ireland prepares to scale back lockdown measures, Ormeau Baths has announced that it's officially now open for business again. New safety procedures and requirements have been implemented throughout the building, including signage and new thermal testing units at entrances to detect people with fevers.

    Anyone using the co-working space will have to adhere to all current government guidelines plus any additional precautions as instructed by signs throughout the building. Many of the companies using the space have adapted to working remotely and may not jump at the idea of getting back to the office right now.
