Petrochemical giants Ineos has been making space on their massive Grangemouth site to build a new £20 million headquarters.
The explosive demolition work at the plant last week helped clear the way for the state-of-the-art four storey facility – just one element of the company’s multi-million pound regeneration of the 1700 acre site - which is scheduled to be operational by September 2016.
Designed by one of Scotland’s leading architectural practices, Michael Laird Architects, the new office is part of the Ineos’ vision for the future of the site, which it plans to turn into a manufacturing hub for the whole of the Central Belt of Scotland, attracting other businesses to the area.
John McNally, CEO of Ineos Olefins and Polymers, said: “The site is undergoing a radical transformation with significant investment that will herald a new era in petrochemical manufacturing at Grangemouth.
“This is another part of our £450 million survival plan being implemented. It shows our ongoing commitment to creating a world class manufacturing site.”
