ABERDEEN Asset Investments has appointed akp to deliver the refurbishment of Hobart House in Edinburgh.
The plans are to provide an open plan space, with akp poised to refurbish windows, install new ceilings and carry out “extensive” decoration and new M&E services along with a number of other alterations across the 2nd and 4th floors.
Martin Rowley, akp joint managing director said, “Careful planning and preparation has been put in by our team in full consultation with the team at Trident Building Consultancy. This is a great project win for us and not only further emphasises our presence within the City but demonstrates the experience and sympathetic approach that the akp team have to offer working within listed buildings.”
Simon Capaldi, partner at Knight Frank Office Agency added, “The refurbishment to the office suites and main entrance, one of only three currently underway in Edinburgh City Centre will provide much needed good quality open plan office accommodation in the core city centre. Hobart House has the ability to provide a wide range of suite sizes and has excellent tenant amenities including showers, lockers and secure bike storage.”
