KPMG’s Aberdeen team has completed the first stage of its relocation to the multi-million pound Marischal Square development, as it reinforces its commitment to the Granite City.
The leading professional services firm has moved out of its base in Albyn Place after 25 years and the new city centre location will eventually be home to around 130 auditors, advisors, consultants and support staff.
The move has been carefully planned for several months, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, ended up being carried out whilst the majority of KPMG’s colleagues worked from home.
Once construction works are completed later in the Summer, staff members will gradually arrive at their new home over the subsequent months.
Martin Findlay, KPMG’s Aberdeen senior partner, said: “KPMG has been part of the fabric of Aberdeen since the nineteenth century, so we felt it was only fitting to make our next base a development which truly reflects the city’s optimistic future.
“Uniquely, for a KPMG office move, we have cleared out of the old office before our new one is ready.
“Having overcome the challenges recent events have created, we can’t wait to welcome everyone to their new home.
“For the first time, our various teams in Aberdeen will be able to work together on one dedicated floor, allowing far greater collaboration and flexibility.”
