The Fife Arms
Purpose built warehousing, workshop, and office accommodation for oil service giant NOV.
Cameron + Ross provided full Civil and Structural Engineering services to NOV for a new Â£40 million development comprising warehousing, workshop, and office accommodation.
The 210,000 sq. ft. facility has helped NOV increase its headcount and combined its services in one location. Housing NOVâ€™s research and development centre for wireline equipment, boasting manufacturing capability for winches, masts, pressure control equipment and tubulars.
We were appointed at an early stage within the design process, working closely with design team and land owner Malcolm Allan Housebuilders to advise on engineering matters through the concept to detailed design, and from planning through to construction.
The engineering design elements involved C+R providing topographical surveys, SUDS and surface water drainage design, foul water design, steel frame design and detailing, reinforced concrete design and detailing, blast wall evaluation, SER design and certification for warrant, external yard slab design to cater for heavy mobile equipment, and pit design for inside of workshops. We worked closely with Scottish Water to go through their network appraisals for both drainage and water supply, with our WIRS accreditation allowing this part.
Cameron + Ross worked closely with landowner, end user and peer review consultants employed by NOV to successfully provide this excellent example of modern day industrial and commercial use within Aberdeenshire.
