Wood Group Continues Consolidation Process

Wood Group confirmed Monday that it has started transferring employees to its new Aberdeen office, located within the CityPark development, as part of the company’s strategy to consolidate its properties into three hubs.

The new office has been named Sir Ian Wood House, after the man who founded the group more than 40 years ago. Located on Hareness Road, Altens, Wood Group’s CityPark office will accommodate 1,650 employees.

Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood Group said in a company statement:

“The decision to name our new Aberdeen office building Sir Ian Wood House was taken to acknowledge the company’s rich heritage and pay fitting tribute to Sir Ian, whose vision, expertise and strength of leadership guided the company across four decades. Responsible for transforming the business from a fishing firm into a major technical services company, Sir Ian laid down the roots that remain the firm foundations of Wood Group today.

“Our strategy to develop these three key bases in the city reflects Wood Group’s continued commitment to the North Sea and our clients and employees who will significantly benefit from the new office and the consolidation of our properties into these strategically positioned hubs.”
