The opening of the new office, based in the heart of the city centre on Gloucester Street, marks the start of a strategic expansion plan for Faithful+Gould in Northern Ireland having already seen its business grow phenomenally in just under eight years. The opening of the new Belfast premises comes during a rapid period of growth for Faithful+Gould that has also seen the launch of new offices at Canary Wharf in London and Bank Chambers in Manchester as part of the company’s five year plan.
Faithful+Gould first arrived in Northern Ireland in 1999 with just one staff member and a single client. Since then, the company’s Belfast office has expanded to over 25 staff and now boasts an array of high profile clients and projects in a variety of sectors, including BT, New Look, Ulster Bank, Royal Mail, NI Water, Multi Development and McAlister Holdings. The company is currently providing advice on the landmark Belfast Sewers Project, Victoria Square Regeneration and the Aurora Tower.
Faithful+Gould’s new office is just yards away from the Victoria Square development where the company is acting as Employer’s Agent.
John Findlay, Regional Director, commented “Our new office marks a successful period of growth for Faithful+Gould in Belfast. Over the last eight years, our involvement in some very high profile projects such as Sprucefield Retail Park, Victoria Square and the Belfast Sewers Project has enabled us to attract a high calibre of both new clients and project and cost management professionals. With the move to larger premises and a number of new projects in the pipeline, we now have the capacity to expand our team and raise the profile of our Northern Irish business further.
"There are exciting times ahead for us, with major milestones approaching at Victoria Square including the ‘topping out’ of the glass dome and even one or two iconic developments in the pipeline – we are awaiting news of the planning approval for ‘Aurora’ which, if approved, would become Belfast’s tallest building. This combined with new and repeat business in the housing, water, retail and banking sectors should see us going from strength to strength."
