North-east property development and office leasing company, Waterloo Quay Properties, has invested a total of £26 million in changing the harbour landscape over the last 15 years. The investment has seen Waterloo Quay buying, refurbishing and developing 10 commercial office developments, offering bespoke space with a comprehensive range of onsite facilities.
Offering in excess of 160,000 square feet of mainly Grade ‘A’ office space, Waterloo Quay’s range of onsite services include a coffee shop, manned reception areas in principal buildings, meeting and conference suites with break-out areas, a fully equipped gymnasium with two squash courts, IT and communications support offering up to one Gigabit Ethernet Internet access throughout the site, extensive surface and multi-storey parking for 287 cars and a courtesy shuttle bus.
Clients currently benefitting from this include Harkand, Peterson UK, DOF Subsea, North Atlantic Drilling, Apollo Offshore Engineering, BW Offshore and KD Marine.
Managing director, Anna-Marie Eardley, said: “It’s always good to receive such positive feedback from our tenants and their visitors on the facilities available at Waterloo Quay. Very few people realise the amount of space we have acquired down here at the harbour and how we have managed to transform that space into a fantastic, user-friendly working environment.
“The majority of our tenants are businesses operating in the offshore and marine sectors, and so cost-efficiency is a top priority, particularly during these difficult times. Our tenants need to know that they have high quality office space with enhanced facilities, without paying over the odds. They want their staff to come in and enjoy the working environment that they operate in, and Waterloo Quay certainly ticks all of these boxes. Our service orientated approach and attention to detail has allowed us to build long-standing and mutually beneficial relationships with our tenants.
“Our ability to offer flexible terms and a wide range of support services, along with – in the event of an upturn - a readily accessible pipeline of additional space for rapid occupation, means that we are ideally placed as the landlord of choice for occupiers looking to locate to Aberdeen or relocate to the harbour area, whilst also being within easy reach of the city centre.”
Waterloo Quay Properties, which overlooks Victoria Dock, comprises of Atlantic House, Merchants House, Pioneer House, Navigator House, Voyager House, Nautilus House, Provender House, Ocean Spirit House and the Courtyard, with the flagship property, the 60,000 square feet Grade ‘A’ new-build, Horizons House, due for completion in December this year.
