WICONA used for Aberdeen's vibrant city centre development

Opened in December 2017, Marischal Square is a vibrant mixed-use complex in the centre of the city, located on Broad Street in the appropriately named area, New Aberdeen. Provost Skene’s House which dates back to the 16th century will be at the centre of the development, as well as the pedestrianisation of Broad Street.

The £107million project is a refreshing mix of high-quality elements including office spaces, coffee shops, restaurants and a four-star hotel, as well as green spaces. This is an area with an intent to be a hub for business as well as a centre for social activity.

The buildings have an impressive exterior aesthetic of high-quality elevations of granite and glass and has a high sustainability rating. The offices possess BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC ‘A’ ratings. Therefore, for this project, WICONA’s WICTEC 60 curtain walling was used, as it is a product that can meet the highest of demands in efficiency, security and appearance. With a 60-mm face width, WICTEC 60 is a stick system façade which is ideal for vertical facades, while fulfilling any high security requirements with superior burglar and bullet resistance and fire protection.

Throughout the complex, the WICSTYLE 75 evo doors were specified. The doors have an outstanding technical performance and modern design, making this product the ideal solution for all new buildings. In addition, with the WICSTYLE 75 evo doors, WICONA is ahead of itself in terms of thermal insulation, which is evident from excellent efficiency results.
