Safetec UK locks in new offices after west end refurbishment – Aberdeen Business News

Must read

Aberdeen-based safety, risk management, decommissioning, human factors and environmental consultancy Safetec UK has secured new office space in the city’s west end, following an extensive refurbishment programme at the property.

The firm is increasing its footprint by relocating to 26 Carden Place from a serviced office suite at Marischal Square, taking 2,272 sq. ft across all three floors. Following several new contract wins, Safetec UK has plans to double its headcount over the next three years.

Knight Frank acted for Harlaw Investments, the building’s landlord.

The traditional granite property has recently been enhanced by Harlaw Investments, working closely with workplace design experts Space Solutions and Safetec UK to bring a new lease of life to the building.

Modern interior design elements have been used to complement the existing period features, creating a more contemporary work environment to suit the growing business. 

Babak Alnasser, managing director at Safetec UK, said: “Since 2019, Safetec UK’s growth has been exponential and with the development of the core staff base, it was the right time to move to a dedicated Safetec office space in Aberdeen’s west end. We are absolutely delighted with the work that has been done by Space Solutions to help us create our perfect Safetec-branded space.

“With over £3 million of sales achieved in the first six months of 2024 alone, adding to the significant sales pipeline from last year, Safetec has plans to continue to develop and grow in the UK, with plans for further growth and offices in London, Glasgow and Aberdeen, enabling us to provide more high-quality independent consultancy support to our broad range of energy industry clients across the UK.”

Matt Park, partner at Knight Frank Aberdeen, added: “Aberdeen’s west end continues to prove a popular location among professional services firms and energy businesses and, with more landlords investing in refurbishment programmes, we expect it will remain a prime choice for offices. In this case, Harlaw Investments worked with Safetec UK and Space Solutions throughout the process to ensure the fit-out matched the needs of the consultancy and will support its future growth.”
