Office space green light at quarry site

AN office development has been given the go-ahead on the edge of Aberdeen’s world-famous Rubislaw Quarry.

Plans for the site were unanimously approved by a city council sub-committee, paving the way for a 10,840 sq. metre development of office space and 358 parking spaces on three levels below the offices.
The office building will be supported above the car park on columns clad in light grey aluminium curtain walling and will have clear glazing giving views over the quarry. Glazing along the sweeping south elevation will reflect the quarry waters below. Silver grey granite surfaces will be used in and around the entrance to recall the previous use of the site.
Committee members heard the shape of the building is dictated by the shape of the site, creating a building that is an elongated curve sitting on the edge of the quarry.
