Hulley & Kirkwood are delighted to have provided MEP professional services, supporting this recent landmark development in the North East of Scotland.
P&J Live has won three awards at The Aberdeen Society of Architects Design Awards 2020 for Sustainability; Commercial and Urban Realm & Landscape categories. The Event Complex has also won awards at the Scottish Property Awards 2020 for Development of the Year (Commercial) and RICS Social Impact Awards 2020 (Commercial).
Replacing the current Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, the new ‘P&J Live’ accommodates a 12,500 capacity arena including 16 VIP Boxes, 3 multi-use halls (2,000m² each), 4 conference suites (combined 2,264m²), meeting rooms, restaurant, 33,000m² Subterranean Space, Food & Beverage Outlets and Merchandise Kiosks, that together constitutes the largest event complex in the North of Scotland.
'P&J Live' is the keystone facility within a broader mixed-use development including an adjoining 200 bed 4-Star Hilton Hotel, a 150 bed Aloft Hotel, a budget hotel and a number of commercial plots for future development.
Recognising Aberdeen’s status as an ‘Energy City’ and a ‘Global Energy Hub’, the development relies upon an innovative low-carbon Energy Centre that utilises a number of technologies to facilitate tri-generation of electrical power, heating and chilled water:
• Fuel Cell CHP
• Absorption Chiller
• Anaerobic Digestion (BioGas)
