Our office in Belfast has more than doubled in size despite challenging operating conditions over the past 12-18 months.
With the delivery and handover of Ulster Hospital, a £220m healthcare project, it’s been an exciting time for our team in Northern Ireland. More recently, they’ve been delivering workplace projects for a global financial institution as well as a life sciences scheme for a government department.
Steve Maddocks, Partner commented, "It’s great to see such positive growth for our Belfast office. The past 18 months have been challenging for our industry, so seeing the team deliver such a key project for the region and move onto delivering other landmark projects is a testament to their hard work and success.
"I’m looking forward to seeing the growth and development of our team and workload within the local market over the next 12 months."
One of the main appointments over the last 12 months is the introduction of structural engineering within the region.
