P&J Live 

We are delighted to have provided MEP professional services, supporting this landmark development in the North East of Scotland.

Replacing the current Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, the new ‘P&J Live’ accomodates 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).

Hulley & Kirkwood successfully delivered the following MEP design services for the project;

  • BIM delivery model.

  • Energy modelling  (Dynamic Thermal Simulation).

  • Approved Certifier of Design (Energy), Section 6 Technical Standards.

  • EPC analysis.

  • BREEAM Excellent MEP compliance. 

  • Electrical services design.

  • Mechanical and public health services design.


  • BREEAM Excellent & EPC B.

  • Largest event complex in North of Scotland with state-of-the-art conferencing technology.

H&K provided us with the correct level of resource and competency of staff to enable us to provide best value to the Client through careful management of the costs during the Design Process. The attitude demonstrated by H&K during this value management was proactive and enthusiastic, thus ensuring the right cost, first time, rather than a protracted value engineering exercise, which could have ultimately reduced the quality of the Project.

Hulley & Kirkwood provided an excellent level of service throughout the Design, and Procurement phases of the project with an in-depth knowledge of Public Health, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Services. H&K’s valued service has continued through to the construction stage of the project.
