The refurbishment of River House, which was delivered to the market last month, included the fit out of 5 Clockwise floors (circa 22,000 sq. ft.), and the redevelopment of the reception area with a double height atrium and installation of a feature glazed lift from the main building reception to the Clockwise reception at the first floor.

Castleforge Partners has invested over £500 million of asset value in the UK since its formation in 2010. Linesight has worked with Castleforge on over 1,000,000 sq. ft. of its property portfolio across the UK. Linesight has used its expertise to successfully tender these projects within budget using a fast-track tender process which requires a hands-on attitude to ensure the level of quality and value expected by Castleforge.

“Linesight has provided us with full cost consultancy services on our Belfast and Liverpool projects with a focus on timely and accurate budgeting and forecasting. The unique benefit of using Linesight on projects of this nature is that the team is very attentive to details, organised and efficient, and from the onset of each project take a proactive role in overseeing all relevant elements of the job to ensure a successful conclusion. We trust Linesight with our investments and hope to continue to collaborate with them on future work,” said Adam MacLeod, Castleforge Partners.

“Each time we collaborate with Castleforge on another one of their world-class projects, we strive to get a deeper understanding of them and their needs. This insight means that we know how Castleforge likes to work, and we can therefore take a proactive role in achieving the best outcomes for them. Our clients appreciate that we provide Director level engagement on all projects, pay attention to detail, work within budgets and often tight timelines, and provide them with strategic counsel throughout. We continue to enjoy a great relationship with Castleforge and welcome our involvement with them in future investments as they grow,” said Michael Riordan, Managing Director, Linesight UK.
