Siemens has officially opened its new gas turbine service centre at Teal Park in Lincoln. Feilden House is a purpose built facility which the firm describes as world class. 500 staff moved from offices elsewhere in the city at the end of last year and the workshop area transferred at Easter.
Bosses say the 135,000 square foot facility has been built to the highest possible specification with capacity for further expansion. There are already 600 employees there but the firm hopes to increase the number of workers as it attracts more business.
The building is also the first in Lincolnshire to be given a BREAM "excellence" rating for its environmental standards thanks to special roof panels and energy efficient lighting as well as electric car and cycle charging points.
