EY moves to new Aberdeen city centre headquarters



Global company EY has revealed plans to move its headquarters to Aberdeen city centre.

The Press and Journal reports that the move will see the company move from its current location in the city’s west end right into the heart of Aberdeen.

The relocation will move EY’s 170 staff members out of Blenheim House and into Marischal Square in 2020.

The firm said the move into the 9,500sq ft office at 2 Marischal Square showed its “ongoing commitment” to the Granite City.

Marischal Square is also home to RBS.

Muse Developments, the firm behind the £107 million Marischal Square development, said securing a client of EY’s standing was further evidence of the buildings becoming “firmly established as one of the city’s landmark office projects”.

Douglas Lumsden, Aberdeen City Council co-leader, said: “The move will bring increased footfall to the area through their already busy client base which will benefit the other businesses in the east end of Union Street and, in turn, help the economy of the city and wider region.”

Muse Developments, the firm behind the award-winning £107 million Marischal Square development, said securing a client of EY’s standing was further evidence of the buildings becoming “firmly established as one of the city’s landmark office projects”.

Stephen Turner, regional director Scotland for Muse, added: “We are genuinely delighted that EY has chosen Marischal Square as the base for its future development in north-east Scotland. The buzz around Marischal Square is palpable and we continue to make steady progress with other potential occupiers who are showing strong interest.”

Douglas Lumsden also said: “It is fantastic news an international company such as EY is moving offices to the grade A space at Marischal Square. EY is a global business with a longstanding presence in Aberdeen – the kind of business we wish to see locating in the city centre. One of the main goals of Marischal Square was to bring jobs and investment back to this part of the city centre. This move will bring increased footfall to the area through EY’s already busy client base which will benefit the other businesses in the east end of Union Street and, in turn, help the economy of the city and wider region.”
