MAXI Construction is leading construction of a £1.7m development on Dundee’s waterfront to support the creative industries sector.
Called District 10, the development will provide office accommodation as well as meeting and networking space constructed from recycled shipping containers.
Being delivered by economic development agency Scottish Enterprise, it is part of a waterfront regeneration project that is expected to see more than £100m worth of projects started or completed this year.
The project was given a financial boost from the Scottish Government’s capital investment in ‘shovel ready’ projects. Maxi expects to complete its work by the summer.
Work will include an element of modular construction and prefabricated elements including a central core of offices created using the shipping containers. It will be built to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standards. Project team includes architect Aim, quantity surveyor Christie & Partners, structural engineer Fairhurst and service engineers BBHP.
Dundee Waterfront is divided into five development sites, each targeted at a different property and economic sector
• Riverside (green space and leisure)
• The Port (offshore wind and tidal manufacturing / processing site)
• Seabraes (digital media and creative industries)
• Central Waterfront (residential, office and leisure)
• City Quay (residential, retail and marina)
