Drum Property Group celebrated a major landmark after the structural building work on the first phase of the Grande development reached completion – the 120,000 square foot office headquarters for leading North Sea oil producer EnQuest.
IPs and business leaders from across the region joined representatives from Drum, EnQuest, and award-winning UK construction and civil engineering company, Sir Robert McAlpine Limited (SRM), for an official topping out ceremony at the eight-storey, high quality office development to mark the occasion.
The ceremony was organised by SRM, who completed the first stage of EnQuest’s purpose-built headquarters on time and budget. Topping out is a traditional ceremony to celebrate the last concrete pour on the highest point of a building.
EnQuest, which is the largest UK independent oil producer in the UK North Sea, also revealed the name of its new building today as Annan House, following the theme of a number of the company’s fields which are named after Scottish rivers and locations such as Don, Deveron and Cairngorm.
Situated at the former derelict Aberdeen Seafood Park on Palmerston Road, Annan House which is part of Drum Property Group’s The Grande development, is helping regenerate a long neglected area in the heart of the city.
