FMC Technologies is a leading global provider of technology solutions for the oil and gas industry. It designs, manufactures and services sub-sea and surface production and processing equipment.
After outgrowing its existing facility, FMC wished to develop a new state-of-the-art service base and corporate office.
FMC’s specific requirements included: a workshop with large internal clearance to house a 63 tonne crane with 15m lift, a 7m deep in-floor test pit, clean-rooms and destructive test rooms, 800sqm of fully fitted out office and 6,000sqm of concrete hardstand.
The outcome is a striking and functional building that complies with the world-class FMC brief. The facade has been carefully designed to enhance the overall appeal of the building. The strong lines of the aluminium louvers and the front entry canopy create a bold entry statement.
Alucobond cladding has been used to add colour and a seamless finish. The staggered skillion roof line over the office and workshop adds to and enhances the buildings geometric form.
