Ardent House Trabsform

PD&MS Group provide design and engineering services to the oil and gas, drilling, production and marine industries. PD&MS focus on brownfield engineering, including upgrades to platforms and rigs. Services include project design, design verification and management, structural, piping, mechanical, HVAC, and electrical / instrumentation design, upgrades and modifications, inspection, auditing and engineering support. The lease at their Aberdeen base was due to end with financial consequences if they missed the move out date, so the fit-out of their new premises at Ardent House was time critical. In addition the project had to be delivered against the financial climate in the Oil and Gas sector in Aberdeen, so cost was also a major factor. Nevertheless, the new office fit out had to be top quality as Ardent House is a brand new building and PD&MS required a prestigious office which reflects their continuing success and expansion.

As part of Tranform’s tender submission we offered not only a very competitive price, but also examined the proposed programme and concluded that we could carry out the works in 10 weeks, not 16, resulting in a cost saving to the client with the earlier entry date. We made a realistic promise that we kept. The fit out involved all of Transform’s trades – 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 result was a high quality finished project that was completed in nine and a half weeks and below the tendered price. We successfully fulfilled the commitment we made. Richard Smeaton, Finance Director of PD&MS said “Thanks regarding the successful completion of Ardent West, on time, on budget and to an excellent standard that has been very positively received. Well done and thanks to all.”
