With its housing stock rapidly increasing, Apex Housing Association is relocating its Belfast office to a city centre location to accommodate its growing workforce serving both the Greater Belfast area and the south east of the province.  Apex will shortly be moving to 6 Cromac Place in the Gas Works where it will occupy two floors.  Apex currently employs over 70 staff at its headquarters in Butcher Street, Londonderry, and will increase its staff in Belfast from two qualified housing officers to seven employees, including additional housing, property services and administrative staff.

The need for a larger Belfast office reflects Apex’s contribution to the department’s Social Housing Development Programme.   It delivered one third of the 2011-2012 programme and currently has 900 dwellings under construction at 30 different locations throughout Northern Ireland.   This represents an investment of over £100 million into the Northern Ireland economy and includes the redevelopment of important sites in Belfast, Derry and County Down that have remained derelict for some time.

Gerry Kelly, the Chief Executive of Apex said: “The new office in the Gas Works will allow Apex to deliver a first class service to all its tenants in the wider Belfast area in an equitable manner irrespective of location.   Although our staff visit our developments on a regular basis, the Belfast office will be very accessible for those tenants who wish to meet with Apex employees when in the city centre on other business.”

Apex employs a total of 560 staff between its offices and supported living schemes throughout Northern Ireland.  It also plans to locate a housing officer in Dungannon to enhance its service in the south west.
