Linesight today announced the relocation and expansion of its Taiwan office, which is indicative of local business growth in addition to further strategic expansion plans for Northeast Asia. The new office demonstrates Linesight’s long term investment and commitment to further advance its operations, as well as develop local talent, in the region. Centrally located on the main street of Taiwan Boulevard (Taichung), the office provides enhanced accessibility and convenience for both clients and staff, while its modern, open floor plan enables engagement and collaborative working.
“We are excited to welcome clients, colleagues and friends to our new office. We continue to provide leading cost management consultancy and build trusted partnership relationships with a highly coveted set of clients in the data centre sector, as well as in high tech, commercial real estate, life sciences and energy. We have ambitious plans for the region as a whole, are continuously hiring and nurturing great talent and we strive to create an inclusive culture for our teams,”
commented Garvan Barry, Director for Northeast Asia at Linesight.
Since 2018, the global construction consultancy has been working with clients in Taipei, New Taipei City, Taoyuan, Changhua and Taichung on all aspects of project and cost management including, but not limited to, procurement, scheduling, contract review and administration, and health and safety consultancy. Linesight has successfully delivered over 71MW of critical IT load to Taiwan data centres with a further 125MW coming onstream shortly. Its ongoing projects, including five data centres, are estimated to be completed between mid-2023 and Q1 2024.
Commenting on the significance of Linesight’s continued investment in Taiwan, John Butler, Regional Director, APAC said:
“Over the past 48+ years in business Linesight has gained deep multi-sectoral knowledge and extensive project experience which we bring to bear locally in each of our 24 offices globally. By understanding the local construction landscape, its contractors, vendors and suppliers, we can provide our clients with an extensive set of project controls services including granular cost and schedule data which helps them manage every element of a project throughout its life cycle and ultimately gives them improved predictability of outcome.”
