The Dyce Office of Aberdein Considine celebrates it’s 25th Anniversary on 7th April, 2013.  Fiona Wildgoose, our resident partner, looks at how the office and the Dyce community has grown during that time.

On 7th April 1988, Aberdein Considine opened a office in the thriving Aberdeen suburb of Dyce.  Located on the main street, at 115 Victoria Street, and only minutes from the train station, the office sits right in the heart of the Dyce community.  In the 25 years since the Dyce office first opened its doors, both the office and Dyce itself have seen significant changes.  As the Dyce local economy has thrived, so too has the Dyce office developed into one of the largest office offices in the firm’s now extensive office network.

For a number of decades following the end of the Second World War, the main employer in Dyce was the ‘Lawsons of Dyce’ factory.  The once thriving business finally closed its doors in the late 1970s.  The old factory site now plays host to a popular modern housing development.  The blossoming oil and gas industry soon took over as the main employer in the area.  With its airport, heliport and train station, thousands of oil and oil related workers either work in the area or pass through Dyce on a weekly basis.  When, in 2007, BP had a multi-million pound development purpose built in Stoneywood, Dyce to be their North Sea Headquarters, one of their two main technical centres in the UK, it was clear that Dyce was viewed as a prime business centre for the UK oil industry.  Dyce currently plays host to many other oil companies such as Aker Solutions, Oceaneering, Baker Hughes, Rolls Wood Group, Stork Technical Services, Petrowell, to name but a few.   Consequently, a large number of oil industry employees have chosen to make their home in and around Dyce, leading to a much increased demand for property in the area.

When it first opened, our Dyce office consisted of a relatively modest corner office with one consulting room, and Aberdein Considine itself had only a handful of offices at that time.  We has since grown into a nationwide firm with offices throughout Scotland, and the Dyce office itself now occupies a substantial corner site spanning two floors.  The office now houses a large team of staff with extensive legal, property and financial services expertise providing a wide range of legal property and financial services to clients in the Dyce area and beyond.

The Dyce economy continues to thrive and currently a number of national developers are making significant investment in the area with ongoing plans for both residential and business development.  As Dyce has grown into a major business centre, so Aberdein Considine’s Dyce office has expanded with it.  Aberdein Considine are proud to have established strong ties with the local Dyce community, providing regular support to local charities and fundraising including the Dyce Gala, Dyce Boys Club FC and Dyce in Bloom.

We have developed a loyal client base, and many who supported Aberdein Considine in the early years are still clients to this day.  On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, Aberdein Considine’s Dyce Office extends its sincere gratitude to the clients who have supported the office over the last 25 years, and we renew our commitment to continue to provide the highest standards of service clients have come to expect.
