Aberdeen Energy and Innovation Parks (AEIP) has seen the completion of three office deals – further indication of commercial property acceleration in Granite City following oil price decline.
All completions will see tenants moving into the James Gregory Centre (JGC) of the Bridge of Don Innovation Park.
New tenants and expansions
One of the completions includes current tenant, 4MS Network Services, who are expanding from four units. This brings their currently occupancy up to just over 1,000 sq ft. Launched in 2007, 4MS is an internet communications and network service for the worldwide oil and gas industry from Aberdeen.
HSI Lateral Wave, who are headquartered in Los Angeles, are specialists in testing services for the oil, gas, plus food industries and more, who have also booked a unit in the James Gregory Centre. They already have existing centres across the UK and were looking for a base in the North East.
Finally, another US owned oilfield services provider, Blue Spark Energy UK were also involved in one of the completions for new occupancy in the James Gregory Centre.
