Fred. Olsen, Ipswich residents since 1988, are mooring their business firmly in the town with the development of their headquarters.
The scheme, in partnership with Artisan (UK) Developments, will see their office space extended with a three storey, 21,000sq.ft. building, accommodating a total of 400+ staff.
Contracts have now been exchanged and enabling work has begun on site, with the repositioning of an electrical substation. Artisan expect to begin building work in the second quarter of 2019 with completion 12 months later. The project will then pause for a period, while the company relocate to the new extension. Artisan will then carry out a comprehensive internal refurbishment of the existing offices, which is planned to complete in the first quarter of 2020.
