Civil ser­vice signs up for l any on of­fices

Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - News -

ONE of the largest of­fice trans­ac­tions in North­ern Ire­land has taken place as the civil ser­vice (NICS) signs up for of­fice space in the newly-re­vamped Nine Lanyon Place.

The con­tract be­tween Cause­way As­set Man­age­ment — which is led by Paddy Kear­ney — and the NICS will see var­i­ous pub­lic sector bod­ies oc­cupy 150,000 sq ft of Grade A of­fice space.

Damian Mitchell, di­rec­tor at Cause­way As­set Man­age­ment, said: “We have been work­ing closely with the Department of Fi­nance’s properties di­vi­sion over the past sev­eral months to fa­cil­i­tate its re­quire­ments. This deal pro­vides the NICS with the tran­si­tional space it needs for work­force con­sol­i­da­tion in a prime city cen­tre lo­ca­tion.”

A Department of Fi­nance spokesman said the lease “will al­low the pub­lic sector to con­sol­i­date op­er­a­tions from var­i­ous lo­ca­tions across the city, en­sur­ing our as­sets are more ef­fi­ciently man­aged and help to re­alise some sig­nif­i­cant cost sav­ings”.

Nine Lanyon Place was the first Grade A of­fice space to be built in Belfast fol­low­ing the sign­ing of the Good Fri­day Agree­ment in 1998. It was com­pleted in 2000.
