How to add value to a traditional West End home

HQ for Archer


Archer are a global oil services company with a presence in over 100 locations internationally. Due to the growth of their North Sea business, Archer were operating from various bases locally without much cohesion or cost effectiveness. Their desire was to create a focal point for the business and they required a site rationalisation programme that would allow all business streams to come together in a single “Super Facility” from which they could take the business forward. Tinto engaged with Archer to develop a model, identify a site suitable for the scale of the project and acted as lead consultant in the project delivery.
