Plans to expand Aberdeen oil HQ
A planning application has been lodged to create a 20,000sq ft extension at Chevron House, part of the Hill of Rubislaw Business Park that is the UK home to oil giants Chevron, Marathon Oil and Conocophillips
Under the plans, the existing ground floor parking area at the building would be turned into offices, while a new single storey extension on the north-east elevation would provide further space.
An extra 64 parking spaces would be added to the existing 285 by creating a new deck over the existing car park to the rear of the building.
This will be covered in green wall cladding where it faces on to Angusfield Lane in order to “minimise visual impact and provide screening for the rear gardens of neighbouring houses”.
Maeve Callery, vice-president of commercial development at the site’s owners, the Talisker Corporation, told Energy Voice: “We have been active in the Aberdeen market for nearly 30 years, including the development of Chevron House and the proposed R7 development across the road.
“We have experienced ups and downs in Aberdeen and the North Sea sector over the years and have always seen the market recover and then some.
“We believe that this application enforces the view that Aberdeen is here to stay as a global centre of technical excellence.
“As long-term overseas investors in Aberdeen we are delighted to be looking ahead and investing yet again in the Hill of Rubislaw.”
