Amec Foster Wheeler offer consultancy, engineering, project management, operations and construction services, project delivery and specialised power equipment services to customers worldwide including BP, Shell, BR Petrobras, GDF Suez, ExxonMobil, Hyundai, Rio Tinto, Chevron, Saudi Aramco, Petronas, to name just a few. As part of its strategy to position itself for the next 25 years in the North Sea, AFW needed to move its regional head office in Aberdeen from its headquarter buildings in Altens Industrial Estate to the city centre. The new office to accommodate 450 people had to offer modern, sustainable, flexible, more efficient and more cost effective accommodation, consolidating a number of the company’s Aberdeen offices into one central hub. The new office was also to accommodate QEDI, Amec Foster Wheeler’s world-leading commissioning and completions business. This consolidation was to allow the business to be more cost effective and efficient, as well as being conveniently located next to the main city centre transportation links. Having key operations in state of the art new offices would allow the business to use technology efficiently to work with the whole global organisation, enhancing the ability to export North Sea expertise while also minimising cost.

To incorporate the key priorities of Amec Foster Wheeler’s strategy, Transform built a modern office with open plan for effective and flexible team working, with cellular meeting and office space constructed with Modu8’s flexible, sustainable and re-locatable partitioning systems. Transform incorporated as much internal glazing into the new scheme as possible to maintain good quality natural light distribution, finished with AFW branding. The ground floor was fitted out as a central hub space with meeting rooms, training areas and collaboration spaces as well as the main cafeteria. In order to maximise the use of technology, we ensured that the flexible workspace was cabled to accommodate both hard wired and wireless systems throughout the building to ensure that individual workers through to large teleconferences were all globally connected. The fit out involved all of Transform’s multi-trade capability – joiner work, ceilings, electrical, data, floorcoverings, glazed partitions and doors, air-conditioning, plumbing and decoration all supervised and managed by our in-house project management team. The solar shading of the building was carried out by Blind Solutions, our inhouse blinds company, and the final move of the staff was co-ordinated and executed by Corporate Moves.
