PLANS have been lodged to create a new home for the University of Aberdeen’s Business School.

The application has been made as part of a near £100 million package to regenerate its OId Aberdeen campus.

The move will see the Business School relocate from its current home in the MacRobert Building to a new single-site home on the site of the currently dormant Johnston Halls which will under-go major refurbishment.

This will include a landmark new pavilion, state-of-the-art lecture and seminar space, a central foyer, and landscaping in outdoor areas.

Plans to enhance facilities in the immediate area of King’s College include a new flagship atrium and work will see improvements to the interiors of a number of areas,  including the Old Senate Wing, Book Stack, and Cromwell Tower.

Alan Speight, University of Aberdeen vice-principal and convener of the programme board leading the project said:  “The submission of our planning application is another step forward in our plans to revitalise our King’s College campus

“The proposed design for the new Business School will deliver an exciting, modern building that regenerates underused space on our campus while remaining sympathetic to its existing surroundings.

“Earlier this month we launched our Aberdeen 2040 strategy which sets out our bold ambitions for the University’s future.  Looking ahead to the next 20 years, it is crucial we remain equipped to meet the needs of modern students with contemporary, adaptable and technology-ready facilities.”
