Dundee sustainable mobility & decarbonisation hub passes planning test
September 16 2022
Dundee City Council has awarded planning consent to a £4.75m centre for the study of sustainable mobility and decarbonisation.
The Michelin Scotland Innovation Parc will stretch to 1,215sq/m and provide a home for researchers and businesses wishing to develop, test and commercialise new technologies and services which can reduce carbon emissions.
Overseen by main contractor Robertson Construction and architects Holmes Miller the hub building earns a prominent position at the main entrance to the parc and will host a variety of offices, meeting rooms, event spaces, design workshops and a café.
In a design statement, the architects said: "The simple form of the building is driven from a desire to create a highly efficient envelope with a rigorous structural grid that allows for maximum future flexibility of the internal spaces that will evolve as the needs of the Innovation Hub manifest."
Spread between working, meeting and display areas the hub is arranged around a feature stair which doubles as a display and events space.
Construction will get underway early next year for completion by October 2023.
That's a lot of words for - "It's a box".
