Blenheim House stands on the former site of a Shell petrol filling station which was opposite the original Grampian Television headquarters in the West End of Aberdeen.
In 2003, the outdated concrete office building which was the old home for Grampian TV was demolished and made way for a development of luxury flats. Work began on the construction of the new Blenheim House in Spring 2005 and was completed a year later in Spring 2006. The finalisation of the luxury flats and the new building completely redeveloped the site and resulted in an improved streetscape for the area.
Blenheim House is an impressive mix of modern, environmentally efficient materials and more traditional silver-grey granite and bears a striking presence close to Queens Cross roundabout.
It provides 17,500 ft² of Grade A open plan office accommodation in a desirable modern working environment with full raised access floors for IT cabling, an efficient comfort cooling and heating system, 8 person passenger lift and 44 car parking spaces.
The flexible design allows the building to be occupied by two tenants - Ernst & Young and JW Holdings Ltd.
In October 2006, Blenheim House was awarded a Commendation by the Aberdeen Civic Society at an awards ceremony at the city’s Town House. The award was in recognition of the sensitive manner the project was carried through from the initial concept to completion.
