DSSR are part of the multi-disciplinary team which are delivering the proposed new Conference Centre at Bucksburn, Aberdeen.

DSSR role initially was to develop the site masterplan with respect to Utilities Infrastructure and site-wide services. Dynamic Thermal Simulation of all buildings on the site was carried out to predict diversified energy loads, allowing the central Energy Centre footprint and plant sizes to be tailored to match anticipated loads.

Following this initial exercise, our remit was extended to cover Client-side monitoring of the design proposals, installation and commissioning of all mechanical, electrical and public health installations for the Exhibition Centre and Hotel 1, which is attached to it.  We have also completed the design proposals for Hotel 2 and are carrying out a similar monitoring role for this development.

The new Conference Centre will form part of the wider development of the Rowett North Masterplan, just south of Aberdeen airport and is due for completion in 2019.
