Inverurie archietects, William Lippe, have announced the successful completion of a £1.25 million contract which involved moving a company to Huntly.

The architecture and space planning firm played a leading role in relocating Pipeline Technique Limited from their previous base at Rothienorman to new, larger premises on Huntly Industrial Estate..

The company was employed to alter and update existing ground floor offices together with a reception area, as well as designing and overseeing construction of a new research and development workshop designed for high quality welding and testing.

The building in question houses two internal ten-tonne cranes which travel the length of the building. The facility also includes two 2G rotating welding floors, an AUT station lab, workshop offices and an amenities block for workshop staff.
