Tried & Tested

For numerous years, Catalyst, formerly recognised as ‘The Northern Ireland Science Park’, has been a esteemed partner of Innov8. Our enduring relationship is founded on delivering unparalleled customer service across the spectrum — from design concepts to product selection and fostering innovation.

Innov8 seamlessly integrate with the Catalyst Property team, working hand-in-hand to deliver consistently for the Catalyst Community.

Innov8 have been Catalyst’s furniture supplier for over 10 years having won 3 framework supply tenders and a number of separately tendered projects. In the last 12 month our purchases have totalled over £400k. We have found Innov8 to be an excellent delivery partner in terms of design input, sourcing furniture, being competitive in price and in delivery of product and installation.

A Space to Entertain

Our commitment to our clients is that we are here for the long-term, the weird and the wonderful, to help them make their ideas come to life.

Catalyst recently asked Innov8 to help them create an outdoor dining space to bring together the communities of the Concourse Building, ECIT, Whitestar House and the Innovation Centre, and provide a space for them to socialise, while still living in the shadow of a Global Pandemic.

multi-site service

Over the duration of our collaborative partnership, Catalyst has experienced remarkable growth, evolving to encompass not only the Innovation Centre, but three purpose-built technology centres (Concourse 1, 2, and 3) but also dynamic entertainment spaces.

Furthermore, our expansion has extended beyond their primary location to include two off-site campuses situated in Antrim and L/Derry, reflecting our commitment to innovation and strategic development. This multifaceted expansion underscores the depth and breadth of Catalyst’s presence in various technological and geographical domains and our commitment to support them.
