Fantastic recognition for a great team effort!

Portland House has been named ‘Fit-out/Refurbishment of the Year’ at the 2023 North East Property Awards.

As the former headquarters of Newcastle Building Society, Portland House was ill equipped to meet modern working standards until a multi-million pound scheme, delivered by Ultimate Group, led to a comprehensive strip-out and refurbishment of the building.

The judges noted that the project achieved “a fit-for-purpose modern office with highly innovative sustainability and technological features throughout, making it the stand-out scheme this year.”

Commenting on the win, developer Oliver Holland, said “Refurbishing Portland House has been incredibly rewarding, and winning ‘Refurbishment of the Year’ is a wonderful recognition of our team’s vision and application.

“Congratulations to everyone involved in what is an amazing stage for the excellent work which we are collectively delivering as a sector.”
