An oil and gas service company is expected to be the next occupant of a new city centre office and leisure development.
Tenaris has lodged a building warrant with Aberdeen City Council to carry out a fifth floor office fit-out at 2 Marischal Square (2MSq).
The work, which would include installing partitions to form meeting rooms and offices, has been priced at £385,000.
The firm supplies tubes and related services for the world’s energy industry and other industrial applications.
It is based at Irvin House on Hareness Road, Altens Industrial Estate.
Jenny Laing, co-leader of Aberdeen City Council, said: “I am delighted oil service company Tenaris are looking to locate their business in the £107 million award-winning Marischal Square development.
“It is clear more and more companies are seeing Marischal Square as a very attractive place to do business right in the heart of Aberdeen and are looking to join Aberdeen Journals and other tenants.”
Muse Developments and Tenaris both declined to comment.
The application comes hot on the heels of NHS National Services Scotland (NHS NSS) which will relocate 115 employees to Marischal Square at the beginning of December – following the end of its lease at Bridge View.
The public body, which provides advice and services to the rest of NHS Scotland, will occupy the fourth floor of the 1MSq building on Broad Street.
Work has now begun on a bespoke fit-out of the 10,000sq ft space, with staff said to be “eagerly anticipating” moving into the new facility.
Aberdeen Journals – part of DC Thomson Media – has already taken up residence on the top floor of 1MSq, now home to more than 200 staff from editorial, digital, advertising, newspaper sales, marketing and commercial.
Other companies that have already moved into the complex include Mackie’s 19.2, Costa, All Bar One, Marriott International, Tony Macaroni and Prezzo.
The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) will also soon move from its home in the city’s West End to Marischal Square and will occupy the top floor of the 2MSq building.
Earlier this year, the £107m facility was named Development of the Year 2018 at the fifth annual Scottish Property Awards.
It was awarded the accolade in May following judging in 15 categories covering the “depth and breadth of the best new commercial and public property projects in Scotland” over the past year.
Marischal Square was also highly commended in the architectural excellence category at the awards – which are regarded as the Oscars of the commercial property sector in Scotland.
The development has also collected other accolades, including being named 2018 Regeneration Project of the Year by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in April and Project of the Year 2018 by the Aberdeen Society of Architects.
It was also highly commended in the Commercial Workplace category at the BCO Scotland awards.
