The new multi-million pound building is part of the long term investment being made by INEOS into its Grangemouth site.
The new multi-million pound building is designed by one of Scotland’s leading architectural practices, Michael Laird Architects, and built by BAM Construction.
In little less than twelve months INEOS has completed the construction of its new, state of the art offices for its employees at its site in Grangemouth and the first occupants will begin to move in during September. For the first time in many years, we will be bringing our teams together in a way that suits the new Grangemouth business operation. It will significantly improve the way that we work and improve productivity with an office that has been designed and built for today’s business needs.
John McNally, CEO INEOS Olefins & Polymers UK says: “In building this new HQ we have signalled our intent to the long term future of our business and our ongoing commitment to creating a world class manufacturing site here in Grangemouth. We have a clear vision for the future of manufacturing and a Masterplan that will bring about the renaissance of the petrochemical business.”
The new multi-million pound building designed by one of Scotland’s leading architectural practices, Michael Laird Architects, and built by BAM Construction, has delivered a landmark office on the Inchyra Road in Grangemouth.
The building includes meeting rooms and conference facilities located on the ground floor, and three floors of open plan office space above. The overall scheme includes enhanced employee facilities such as secure bike storage, gym facilities, changing rooms and showers.
The new building is just one element of the innovative redevelopment of Grangemouth site, to become a centre of excellence for chemical manufacturing. Old plants and vacant buildings are being demolished, creating “brown field” plots that can be used to attract new investment and new businesses. These businesses can then take advantage of the existing power, steam, logistics and other services provided by INEOS at the site.
CEO John McNally, continues: “We will make parts of our site available to companies that will benefit from the services and infrastructure that we have to offer here at Grangemouth. Our vision for the future creates a centre of excellence at Grangemouth and a virtuous circle of attracting new investment, creating new jobs and providing Scotland with the vital raw materials that it needs to support its manufacturing sector. We believe that a long term secure future for chemical manufacture at Grangemouth will bring prosperity to our local communities and for those whose livelihoods depend on our continuing presence in the area.”
