North wins Forum Energy Technologies work

North is continuing to build on a strong start to 2015 after it secured work as part of the construction of a new Westhill facility for Forum Energy Technologies.

The specialist provider of both interior and exterior construction and refurbishment services has won a contract, worth in excess of £1million, for the interior fit out of the global oilfield product company’s new premises at the town’s Peregrine Road.

The package, which will involve North’s contracts and joinery team, includes a range of electrical and air conditioning works alongside the installation of a number of partitions to form core office areas.

The work is part of what is a major multi-million pound development which, on completion, will initially be home to 120 employees, bringing together five Forum businesses that are currently spread throughout Aberdeenshire. The new building will span 14,000 sq ft of office space, 40,000 sq ft of warehouse and 36,000 sq ft of outdoor yard space.

Forum is a global oilfield products company, serving the subsea, drilling, completion, production and infrastructure sectors of the oil and natural gas industry. Its regional head office will remain at Cumberland House, Westhill, with Forum AMC continuing its manufacturing and operations from its current base in Findon, Aberdeenshire.

Ian Campbell, managing director of North, said: “North has had an extremely strong start to 2015 and this latest contract win for work on behalf of Forum Energy Technologies is integral to our ambitious growth plans for the year.

“The calibre of contract win is extremely pleasing and we’re looking forward to working with Forum to help provide a fantastic work environment for its employees.

“Both our contracts and joinery teams will be mobilised as part of the work scope and with our bespoke capabilities combined with our experienced personnel, we are confident of delivering a high quality interior package.”
