Construction commences on Aberdeen Aloft hotel
Aberdeen’s newest hotel has begun to rise from the ground after Robertson Construction moved on site of a 150-bedroom venue at the site of the new Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, Bucksburn.

The first physical manifestation of a second phase of the AECC masterplan the Aloft branded hotel sits immediately adjacent to a separate Hilton hotel to the south.

Nick Harris, director of Henry Boot Developments, said: “Having a world-class music and conference venue in Aberdeen will be of tremendous benefit to the north east. Recent figures from industry body UK Music suggest 40% of people going to live music events are music tourists – people travelling to the venue from elsewhere in the UK or abroad.

“The new AECC arena will have a capacity similar to the Hydro in Glasgow, making it far more likely that Aberdeen will attract the big names in entertainment and get a bigger slice of this music tourism pie. That’s why it’s great to have high-quality, modern hotels like Aloft on site to meet this need.”

Designed by Cooper Cromar with interiors by Twenty2Degrees the facility will include its own bar, lounge and gym with contemporary interiors.

What a banal, lazy piece of architecture. Should fit in well to the AECC context.
