Aberdeenshire Council to extend Peterhead base
April 11 2019
Aberdeenshire Council is to press ahead with a £1.5m extension to their Buchan House headquarters in Peterhead, with a new wing of accommodation to be leased to Police Scotland.
Robertson Construction is due to move on-site in mid-May for the 412sq/m build which will provide a shared administrative hub for the council and police on the upper floor, with the lower level reserved solely for the police.
Architects Halliday Fraser Munro will achieve this by extending a current gable over an adjacent car park to the same design and materials specification as the existing building, connecting to it on both ground and the first floor.
Gordon Milne, managing director for Robertson Eastern, said: “Over the past several years, Robertson has developed a close relationship with Aberdeenshire Council and this latest project cements our reputation as specialists in delivering bespoke builds for clients.
“As the original developer of Buchan House, we’re excited to be part of the extension project that will bring much-needed additional facilities and space for Aberdeenshire Council and Police Scotland.”
Completion is expected in January next year.
