Cadherent Breathes New Life Into Listed Aberdeen Building

Chris Reid, operations director and David Thomson, managing director outside Cadherent’s new premises - a newly renovated, category C listed building on Aberdeen’s North Esplanade West.

Cadherent has relocated and investment in the renovation of a category C listed building, breathing new life into one of the city’s oldest warehouses.

The 17,000 sq. ft. premises, based on the city’s North Esplanade West, has a rich history. Built in 1937 by John Bisset & Sons, the grand renaissance style granite building was once known as the ‘Caretaker’s House’ as well as formerly housing food manufacturer Unilever and fizzy drinks firm Aberdeen Mineral Water Co.

This is a strategic move for the engineering, design and visualisation specialists, moving to an area of considerable regeneration for the oil and gas sector.

David Thomson, managing director of Cadherent Ltd explains: “Since Cadherent’s launch in 2006, the team has worked hard to establish the company as a leader in engineering, design and visualisation. Although market conditions are notably challenging, this is a strategic move for the company, which will see us enable future development in a central area of the city.

“Due to the nature of the city, we are predominantly oil and gas sector focussed and felt this is the perfect opportunity to increase our visibility directly within this marketplace. Having considered various options around the city, this building provided us with a unique opportunity to join an area of significant regeneration and investment from some of the world’s leading oil and gas based businesses, whilst also helping to restore a little piece of history.

David concludes, “We invested in a six month renovation prior to our move this month, which included the treatment of the granite front and fit out of the interior. We are also very interested in setting up some sort of community art project for the regeneration of the warehouse space – so there are some exciting things to come.”

Cadherent Ltd specialise in the delivery of first class project management, engineering, design, draughting, laser survey and 3D modelling to the international oil and gas sector.
