Chartered surveying agency Gordon Ingram Associates invests in prime Belfast office space

A UK chartered surveying agency has made a "significant investment" after moving into prime city centre Grade A offices in Belfast.

Gordon Ingram Associates (GIA), which is headquartered in London's South Bank, has moved into River House on High Street.

The agency specialises in advising clients on rights of light, daylight and sunlight and other matters that affect enjoyment of property.

It has six members of staff in Belfast, but has plans to employ a further 10 people in the next 12 to 18 months.

The roles will be in consultancy and surveying as well as design and analyst jobs.

GIA partner Kevin Francis, who heads up the Belfast office, said that the firm's continued growth and investment in Belfast comes in response to the increasing market demand for its services in Northern Ireland.

"As the commercial real estate sector in Northern Ireland continues to grow, it is clear to see that there is an appetite and relevance for GIA in the local market," he added.

"Our recent office move is a clear indication of the confidence that the firm has in the Belfast practice and highlights our long-term ambition and commitment to the city."

Mr Francis added that while they are mindful of Brexit, the firm will "always be relevant" as long as there is construction.

Gordon Ingram Associates is behind VU.CITY technology, which is an interactive 3D platform that "models and helps shape the future of the built environment in cities across the globe".

VU.CITY has been adopted by 25 of London's boroughs, as well as other major cities including New York, Paris and Belfast.
