CBRE ABERDEEN TAKES OCCUPATION OF 1 ALBYN TERRACE
Leading global property consultancy CBRE has announced it has taken occupation of a new, larger office in Aberdeen on the back of the firm’s growing workforce in the North East.
Following completion of an extensive fit-out project, CBRE has moved into a 3,250 sq ft office at 1 Albyn Terrace, an architecturally impressive granite building overlooking Queens Terrace Gardens, in the heart of the west end business district of the city.
The office fit out, designed in collaboration with the CBRE team in Aberdeen and the firm’s Workplace Strategy Group, has implemented CBRE’s global Workplace360 initiative.
Workplace360 aims to create a collaborative and stimulating environment for employees, with no assigned desks, an open plan environment, comfortable break out areas and a ‘paperless’ office.
The new, flexible premises come at a time of expansion for CBRE in Aberdeen, with two new graduates recently joining the firm’s highly acclaimed scheme.
Amy Tyler has joined the firms Agency and Asset Services departments with Amie Owen joining the Building Consultancy team.
When looking to acquire a new office we were keen to secure space that had potential to create a more forward thinking working environment that was reflective of how we work and how we can best serve our clients. The fit-out of our new office at 1 Albyn Terrace certainly promotes increased collaboration and provides an overall improved experience for both employees and clients. We are delighted to have now moved in to the excellent new workspace and also welcome our new recruits Amy and Amie to the team.
The team has already embraced the new workplace initiatives such as moving towards a paperless office with digital files, allowing for break-out areas for staff and clients to be created in areas we would have previously used for file and paper storage. The improved technology also enables staff the flexibility to work from any desk in the office, which has encouraged further open communication between departments.
CBRE offers a multi-discipline service from Aberdeen and has advised on a number of major commercial projects in the city including The Silver Fin Building, Marischal Square, The Point, Hill of Rubislaw The Grande and Bon Accord St Nicholas Centre.
CBRE’s Aberdeen office is a key member of the international firm’s Global Energy Practice and has also represented major occupiers in recent transactions across the city including Statoil, Aker Solutions, Forum, LR Senergy, GDF Suez and Anderson Anderson & Brown.
