LONDON, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Award winning Peldon Rose Workplace Consultants has secured a major contract to design and fit-out Aker Solutions' 1700-strong engineering hub in Chiswick Park, London.
The new contract is one of the largest to be given in the UK and at 220,000 square feet comprises the entire Building 6 at Chiswick Park. Peldon Rose provided 25,000 square feet of workspace for the Norwegian oil and gas Company on its re- entry into the UK market, last November.
Aker Solutions was today praised by Prime Minister David Cameron, who said that the new hub is "...great news for the economy and is a vote of confidence in the skill, expertise and professionalism of our engineering sector."
The new offices will be able to house 1700 personnel, including specialist engineers, project managers, administrative staff and up to 200 customer representatives.
Jitesh Patel, Chief Executive Officer, Peldon Rose Workplace Consultants, said:
"It is wonderful to be part of a project that will assist the UK as a whole and it is great to be back at Chiswick Park again."
Peldon Rose designs and builds workplaces for a diverse range of companies and organisations which includes Tullow Oil and Baker Hughes, which are based at Chiswick Park. In 2010, the Tullow Oil contract was one of the largest design and build projects in the UK.
Peldon Rose' clients include Google, Stella McCartney, Lloyds, World Gold Council and Save the Children International. It performs for both large and small companies. It is one of the Sunday Times Best Places to Work For and has gained five prestigious International Property Awards.
The Aker Solutions fit-out project is very fast track, with the occupation being phased over the next 18 months. Peldon Rose will be working alongside the building developer to fit-out floors as the building construction proceeds.
