Aberdeen Science Centre revamp approved by council
POSTED 05 Oct 2018 . BY Luke Cloherty
A proposed £4.7m (US$6.1m, €5.3m) renovation of Aberdeen Science Centre in Aberdeen, Scotland has been given planning approval from the city’s council.

Plans for the building include installing a new upper floor, doubling its exhibition space in size, renovating its existing coffee shop and installing new user facilities for an expected increased visitor numbers.

"This new floor incorporates voids to allow light from above to filter down to the lower level," said project designers Halliday Fraser Munro.

"In conjunction with the new upper floor, we have introduced a new feature stair, which links the reception with the new exhibition space. This is an open stair which allows views through and up to the exhibits on the new level.”

It was reported last year that £1m (US$1.3m, €1.1m) was being sought from Aberdeen City Council for the regeneration, while remaining funding would be sourced through a combination of charitable donations and external financiers.

"The team in charge of the science centre have some very ambitious plans that I’m excited to see become reality," said Aberdeen councillor Michael Hutchison.
