The new plans for Lagan Construction Group’s head office, Rosemount House details a c. 40,000 sq ft state-of-the-art office extension that will provide a hub for over 250 relocated employees from H&J Martin, one of Northern Ireland’s oldest and most prestigious building firms, which was recently acquired by the Lagan Construction Group.
The plans for the Sydenham Road facility also include associated car parking, site works and re-cladding the existing premises, creating new employment in the construction sector. The new headquarters will accommodate up to 400 employees and facilitate the growing business requirements of the family-owned construction firm which has a turnover in excess of £300m.
“These plans represent a major investment from the private sector into the local economy and a vital development for Lagan Construction Group as we seek to progress our growing business ambitions and increase turnover. Following our acquisition of H&J Martin and our desire to have a central hub for all our operations, we have outgrown our current office provision – and this application represents the next stage in our business growth. With the site benefitting from excellent transport connections immediately adjacent to Belfast city centre, the proposal is a sustainable form of development.”Colin Loughran, Chief Executive of Lagan Construction Group
H&J Martin continues to trade under its existing name, with the Company now part of the Lagan Construction Group of companies. The current HQ of H&J Martin on the Ormeau Road will be re-developed at a later stage.
