Established in 1975, Portview has evolved from a mainstream construction company into an innovative fit-out specialist that creates stunning interiors for world renowned brands.
Deramore Developments is founded in Belfast, with head offices (formally a car showroom) located just off the historic Ormeau Road.
Throughout the Troubles, Portview picked up a lot of reactive maintenance work following bomb attacks which involved the boarding up and refits of stores and businesses caught in the crossfire. That was just the background to life.
