Bruce Shaw Partnership is established.
Brendan O’Mara joins Peter Bruce of Bruce Shaw Partnership to establish a new business in Dublin.
Our Dublin office opens at 20 Fitzwilliam Square on 1st January 1980. Dublin remains our HQ to this day.
We won the Irish International Financial Services Center (IFSC) project in the Custom House Docks, which was the largest project in Ireland at the time - our work here marked a pivotal point for us as a business, securing huge wins with multinational companies.
We began working with our first international tech clients.
Reaching £10 million in turnover as an early milestone in our development, our business experienced huge organic growth throughout the 90s, necessitating a larger HQ at Hamilton House, 28 Fitzwilliam Place, Dublin 2.
Our Cork office opened, following the acquisition of PJ Coveney & Co.
We established our Limerick office.
Once again, continued growth meant that a larger office space was needed for the Dublin HQ, so the team moved to Kestral House, Clanwilliam Place, Dublin.
We secured our first data center project, for a major international technology firm. We have since delivered 290+ Data Centers facilities across the world and over 2,900+MW of critical power for the biggest search, owner-occupier and colocation providers in the world.
Our Dubai office opened, followed by Bahrain and Riyadh, as well as our office in Paris.
Our first US office was established in New York.
We established our presence in APAC, with the opening of our Sydney office.
We opened our office in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Our second and third APAC offices were established in Singapore and Shanghai, as well as another European office in The Hague.
We opened our office in Dusseldorf.
We continued to grow in the US, with a West Coast office in San Francisco.
We rebranded to Linesight. We had been known as Bruce Shaw for over 40 years, but needed a global brand name and identity that we could use on an international basis, and that would continue our brand legacy.
We expanded our UK offices in London and Manchester.
We had a busy year in APAC, opening offices in both Mumbai and Taipei, and established our fourth Irish office in Galway.
Linesight continues to expand globally, growing our dynamic team, solidifying relationships with existing clients and building relationships with new clients, as well as consistently enhancing our service offering.
We now have 22 offices, 750+ staff and 25 nationalities globally.
