Our living room at the moment is empty with no fireplace or flooring. So which should be installed first the fireplace/fire or the laminate floor?

If the fireplace will have a hearth, it should go in first. If the firebox is gas fueled it is framed in the wall or an already built wall bump-out, so the floor profile wont change and you could put the flooring in first. I would prefer to have all construction done before the flooring goes in to avoid damage.
