AMSTERDAM — Mayor Wim Deetman presided at the official opening of the expanded complex for energy company Shell in The Hague on Friday morning.
The firm's three buildings on Carel van Bylandtlaan in The Hague were re-furbished and a new building was added. The project took three years and cost EUR 160 million.
The complex consists of offices, a training centre, a supermarket, a hair salon, a bank and sports facilities.
The expansion of the headquarters in The Hague was necessary to accommodate the managerial staff transferred from London following the uniting of Royal Dutch and the UK-based Shell under one board.
Although the complex was officially opened by Deetman on Friday, 2,500 Shell staff have already been working there for some time.
