However, I posted a few sneak-peak pictures of our new studio on Twitter last night and the world went mad with retweets and good wishes.
Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration but, the response was overwhelming. It's great to see the comments and reaction to the great work being done, by so many teams, to bring UTV Ireland together.
If you don't happen to be on Twitter (follow me @MW_UTV), or if you missed them, here they are:
Building work is still in its infancy, but already offices are taking shape, and heating and air conditioning units, as well as lighting, have all been put in their respective homes.
When we took over the office, it was a concrete shell with no facilities. So, as you can imagine, everything needs to go in - from walls to soap dispensers.
Full credit to the team working on this project - MCA Architects, MAC Interiors, and TSL for when the tech-fit begins. They have been working closely behind the scenes and the level of their professionalism is outstanding.
Over the coming weeks, two studios, four edit suites, countless offices, change rooms, graphic suites, a sales floor and a newsroom will start to come together - not to mention bathrooms and changing and make-up rooms too.
We'll also have a space for technical operations and, I think somewhere among it all, is an office for me - along with finance, communications and other corporate functions.
We'll keep you updated with more photos as UTV Ireland HQ continues to develop.
PS: Thanks to Neal, our Comms Manager, for taking the photos.
