Case Study

The MAC “We’re creating a vibrant city to work in, to visit and to live in”

As one of our most fabulous modern spaces for the arts in Belfast The MAC is part of the heartbeat of the Cathedral Quarter.

Both inside and out, The MAC epitomises the development of an environmentally aware City and has proactively engaged with the collaboration of business that is the Business Improvement Districts.

Driving down costs for businesses, enhancing the trading environment and making Belfast city centre cleaner, more accessible and safer are just a few of the things the three Belfast BIDs offer their members.

The MAC became one of the first organisations in Destination CQ (the Cathedral Quarter BID) to sign up to the new trade waste partnership, which sees ISL Waste Management joining with Belfast One BID, Destination CQ and the Linen Quarter BID to improve the quality and cost of waste and recycling collections for city centre businesses.

Lisa McGinley, Head of Operations at The MAC explained:

“Speaking as an ISL customer and BID member, I am delighted with the savings made thanks to the increased buying power created by the formation of the Belfast BIDS.

“However, the work of providing value for money to business members is only starting and we are looking forward to the delivery of many more procurement deals to ease the burden of cost which will make Belfast a world class place to visit and do business.”

Creating a Sustainable Belfast

Danny Paton Customer Accounts Manager, ISL said: “The aim of Belfast BIDs is to improve the city centre area and to support local businesses through collective purchasing, advocacy, investment and stimulation of growth. As part of our trade waste initiative, ISL is the only waste management company operating in the area whose performance and service is being measured on a continual basis.”

“Our goals are not only to save companies substantial money on their waste costs, but also to help them create a more sustainable Belfast by reducing the level of waste, improving the efficiency and environmental impact of waste collections and diverting all waste from landfill, instead increasing recycling and supporting local charities through reuse solutions.”

Lisa’s experience has been a positive one so far and she praised the BID partnership, adding:

“The BID allows The MAC to be part of a group of organisations who can collectively work together to improve services within the city centre.”

“It allows businesses, who wouldn’t otherwise have that buying power, to access better costs, better service, better quality.”

“Being part of The BID partnership allows The MAC to work collectively with other Belfast city centre organisations to not just improve services but to create a vibrant city to work in, to visit and to live in.”
