Linesight has further expanded in the U.S. with the opening of its Dallas, Texas office earlier in 2020. Linesight has an established presence in the Central U.S. region and is now working on 1.3 million sq.ft. of projects with a value of over $600 million.
To meet the market demand in Dallas-Fort Worth, which ranks as the second-busiest construction market and second highest data centre leasing market in the U.S., Linesight’s globally developed project management techniques will be an asset to developers in optimising project timelines. The new Dallas office will broaden the company’s capabilities throughout the Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Nebraska regions.
Most recently Linesight provided project and cost management services on a three-floor renovation project in Dallas for global advisory, broking and solutions company, Willis Towers Watson, which was completed ahead of schedule. The Willis Towers Watson project was designed to merge three existing office spaces in the Dallas metropolitan area into one space in the Ross Tower. Working with Verderame & Cale, a New York-based architectural firm, and Balfour Beatty, the project’s general contractor, approximately 72,000 square feet of office space was modernised, including conference rooms, workspaces, and a three-story atrium. This was Linesight’s largest project to date with Willis Towers Watson.
“Creating a new space on schedule for hundreds of employees represented many challenges. However, Linesight’s ability to understand our timeline, budget and vision has allowed for a smooth transition. We thank the entire project team and appreciate the role Linesight had in the project’s success,”
said Justin Rehrer, Real Estate Manager, Willis Towers Watson.
“Following the completion of the Willis Towers Watson project and the overall success of Linesight as a global expert in construction cost and project management, it was the right time to open our next office in Dallas. With construction demand growing in the Central U.S., having a dedicated office in the region gives us a clear understanding of the local issues facing the industry. We are also excited to have Darren Newell, Program Manager for Linesight, lead our team in Texas and bring our project experience to bear here,"
said Patrick Ryan, Executive Vice President of Linesight.
Due to COVID-19, Linesight has been unable to host a formal office opening. However, it is their intention to invite their clients, colleagues, partners and construction professionals to a celebration whenever it is safe to do so.
