Detailed plans drawn up for Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre
August 28 2015£333m Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre at Rowett North, Bucksburn.
Prepared by Keppie Design the plans will be complemented by a 200 bed four star hotel and 1,300 space underground car park situated below a new civic square and main entrance.
Clad in glass curtain walling, white pressed metal ‘ribbons’ and profiled aluminium sheeting the complex will house a multi-purpose arena and a ground floor concourse populated by bars and cafes.
In their design statement the architects observed: “The footprint is translated into three dimensions as a series of angular forms which amalgamate the disparate internal volumes into a singular form which rises and falls in the East-West direction.
“Continuity of form is reinforced with the application of ribbon profiles which contrast in colour with the wall cladding. These stretch the length of the facades to delineate the building profile, constrain the wall planes and allude to how the roof planes fold over the gable walls.”
Councillors will consider the scheme on 29 October with work commencing early next year if approved.
