Prime Four is Aberdeen's first and only world-class business park.
Drum Property Group, the developer behind Prime Four, has invested over £200million to date in creating the first phases of the park, which includes state-of-the-art office space and training facilities for global oil and gas majors such as Statoil, Lloyds Register, Premier, Apache, Nexen and Transocean, professional services firm Anderson Anderson & Brown, and hotel Urban Village Resorts.
The development of the park is expected to be a catalyst for additional significant investment and underlines the long-term future of Aberdeen as the energy capital of Europe. Economic consultants have estimated that the first phase alone will sustain around 1,200 jobs locally and be worth £300million a year to the local economy. Future phases of development at Prime Four will anchor many billions of pounds of economic output and thousands of additional jobs in the city for years to come.
Drum Property Group is also committed to enhancing access to the area, and funded major local road improvements as part of the development. In addition to the contribution of over £1million to the Strategic Transport Fund, Drum Property Group invested over £6million in the improvement of the local road infrastructure surrounding Prime Four.
Drum Property Group used all available off-peak working hours to complete the road improvements as quickly as possible. We thank all users of roads affected in the local area for their patience, understanding and co-operation whilst this essential work was completed.
Any road improvement works will be detailed in advance below.
