Danish shipping giant AP Moller–Maersk requires more domestic office space as it continues to grow its operations.

The Borsen daily has reported that the group plans to almost double the area available to staff at the group’s headquarters in Copenhagen.

Maersk has applied for permission from Copenhagen Municipality to begin its largest construction project at its head office so far.

A new building will be constructed on the neighbouring plot of Amaliegade 44, immediately south of the company headquarters.
