Aker signs new Aberdeen offices

Aker Solutions has agreed to lease a new office complex in Aberdeen on a 20-year contract as part of an expansion in the UK.

The facility is under development and will consist of three interconnected buildings in the new Aberdeen International Business Park near Aberdeen airport.

The complex will total about 31,100sq m of office space and related facilities, including a fitness center with squash courts, catering facilities, a nursery, medical facilities and an auditorium.

The development is the first phase of the park's development and is expected to be ready for occupation Q2 2015. 

Aker Solutions currently has operations spread across six sites in the city. Subsea, the company's largest business area, is already located in Dyce. The new facility will have the capacity to house about 2400 employees from different business streams in an area that is expected to benefit from development in surrounding infrastructure. This includes the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Road, set to be completed in 2018.  

Aker Solutions will lease the buildings from the property developer Abstract (Cornwall) Ltd. (ACL). Aker Solutions also has options to extend the lease for three five-year periods, with the rent subject to open market review.

ACL is a subsidiary of Aker ASA, which indirectly and directly owns 34.5% of Aker Solutions.
