REFURBISHED OFFICES SET FOR OPENING
A multimillion pound project to refurbish and upgrade a key city centre office building in Aberdeen has reach completion.
An event to mark the re-opening of the Huntly Street building will take place today.
AB1 – formerly known as Langlands House and occupied until February 2014 by oil services company Transoccan – has been extensively refurbished to provide a much needed prime location office space in a flexible layout.
Works carried out include the installation of air conditioning and raised access flooring throughout.
The appearance of the building has also received a major uplift through the demolition of the previous entrance, which has been replaced by a new three storey glazed affair.
The project was a joint venture between investor Aberdeen Asset Management and Edinburgh based property developer Manse.
David Mitchell, managing partner of Manse said “We have spent nine months working on the building and believe that it now offers first class office accommodation.
“It can be let in a variety of different configurations depending on tenant requirements. We also have the twin advantages of being very close to all the usual city centre amenities and transport options, while having very generous parking provision on site.
“Despite recent concerns over oil prices, we’ve already seen good levels of tenant interest in the building.”
Totalling 48,500 square feet of accommodation, the building is available in open plan suites from 5,000 sq ft.
Katherine Monro, a partner in the Aberdeen office of Knight Frank, which is marketing the building jointly with Ryden, said: “City centre office accommodation has for a number of years been in short supply and AB1 represents an innovative response.”
