Accommodation Upgrade


After completing  a detailed Survey on board Magnus Aiken Group we requested to complete a FEED Study that would provide a full refurbishment programme for the 91 cabins, TR, and Galley.

The FEED study was developed in close conjunction with the client and in addition to the main refurbishment itself a number of unique design details were incorporated in to the cabin and furniture design to ensure current issues being experienced offshore were catered for, this also included the maintenance of the new scheme as future proofing Magnus was a key in its final design and specification.

Facts from the project

  • 80 cabins, galley and recreational areas
  • Over 10,000 man hours training
  • 330,991 individual construction component
  • 800+ container movements
  • 292,442 man hours
  • Zero incidents


Accommodation Upgrade


An offshore survey and FEED study were carried out on the BG Armada platform. The FEED study write up was then reviewed and approved by the client.

The 3D graphic cabin layout drawings were shown offshore to the BG Armada platform welfare committee and others, and positive feedback was received. The agreed output was to go ahead with the proposed cabin layout presented for review.

The Aiken Group project team thereafter completed all design, engineering, draughting and procurement activities for the different multi-discipline scopes of work.

The offshore accommodation upgrade work, consisted of destruct, outfitting, commissioning and final acceptance and hand over to Client.
