Yesterday, 23rd February, was the official opening ceremony of the brand new Subsea 7 offices on Brighton Road in Sutton.
Deputy Mayor Steve Cook, Cllr Jayne McCoy and Cllr Ruth Dombey
Subsea 7 is a subsea engineering, construction and services company serving the offshore energy industry. The new offices replace an old council car park and allow Subsea 7 to not only maintain but also expand their presence in Sutton.
Not only is it an asset for the borough to be home to such a prestigious company, Subsea 7 is also giving back to the local community by working with local schools and encouraging our young people into careers in engineering.
Councillor Jayne McCoy, Chair of the Housing Economy & Business Committee, said: “I’ve been proud to watch this project grow from inception to completion. 500 people are already working in the building - jobs that could have otherwise been re-located. They hope to expand to over 800 staff which is great news.
“The building also meets BREAM Excellent rating and includes features specifically to improve biodiversity. In particular, it has a green roof planted especially to attract the rare small blue butterfly, and there will be more trees planted on the site than were removed for the redevelopment.”
Councillor Ruth Dombey, Leader of Sutton Council, added: “It’s great to see such a big company choose to set up their headquarters in Sutton. We’re determined to make sure Sutton continues to not only be a great place to live and raise a family, but also a great place to work and do business.”
