Final countdown for Aberdeen events complex

Aberdeen City Council and Henry Boot Developments have begun a final countdown toward the opening of a major new events hub on 10 August with a formal handover by Robertson Construction.

The TECA Complex, including two on-site hotels, has been designed by Keppie with a 12,500-capacity main arena called P&J Live at its heart, supported by three exhibition halls, conference rooms and meeting areas.

Robertson CEO Derek Shewan said: “The TECA complex has been three years in the making and this is a proud time for all involved. 

“From the east end of the site being located immediately below a flight path, to the diversion of an existing watercourse, and the re-routing of major utilities, there has been no challenge that we haven’t overcome together.”

The new venue was commissioned to position the city as a significant tourism destination and diversify the economy away from oil and gas.

#1 Don't you think they should get diversify away from oil and gas? Where do the hansom cab light fitters have their conference? Handy for oil and gas expo as it's local to resources, workforce and skills.
