In a nutshell, this is what they will telling everyone this Monday (1/30) regarding office space
(Upon close of the transaction, the business unit center for our combined gas business (excluding gas distribution) will be located in Houston in the current Spectra Energy corporate office at 5400 Westheimer Court, in the Galleria area
People based at the Enbridge building at 1100 Louisiana St. will relocate to 5400 Westheimer Court, and while we do not know the specific date of the move, we are planning for that to take place by the end of 2017, subject to close. No relocations will take place until after the transaction closes, expected to occur during the first quarter of 2017.
We anticipate that the Westheimer Court building will undergo some modifications to accommodate additional team members, and we will share more details about the relocation when they are known.
The move is an important part of ensuring we are able to fully integrate the two companies. It will bring everyone in Houston together, as the Westheimer Court building is large enough to accommodate the integrated Houston workforce. The move will also help achieve some of the financial targets related to the merger.
For those Enbridge employees now working in downtown Houston, this relocation represents a major change, but we will do our best to ensure a smooth transition when the move occurs. We also recognize modifications to the Westheimer Court building may create some inconveniences to those working there. We will work hard to minimize any disruptions.)
