Construction News Image
Aberdeen's multi-million pound event arena is to open in summer 2019.

Building partners confirmed The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA) will open next year beside Aberdeen International Airport.

The build is being developed by Henry Boot Developments (HBD) and main contractor Robertson Group, on behalf of Aberdeen City Council.

The facility will also include three further conference/exhibition halls, four multi-purpose conference suites, nine meeting rooms, two on-site hotels, an energy centre, extensive landscaping and parking.

Aberdeen City Council Co-Leader Councillor Jenny Laing said: "We are delighted that summer 2019 is to be the opening date for TECA and we look forward to making many more exciting announcements about acts, exhibitions and conferences.

"We want to attract major artists and new events to the north-east to ensure the area competes on a global scale and TECA plays a major part of that, as part of our Regional Economic Strategy which has internationalisation at its heart."

The interiors of the facility are currently being fitted out with progress on internal blockwork, metal stud partitions, and mechanical, electrical and plumbing installations continuing.

Nigel Munro, Regional Project Manager for HBD in Scotland said: "Work on the internal fit-out is progressing quickly, so what has for a long time felt like a huge engineering project is now really starting to come to life as TECA.

"The build programme remains on schedule and the finish line is now in sight for this flagship project for Aberdeen and the north east."

TECA is expected to create 352 full-time-equivalent permanent positions by year 10 of operations. It will also contribute an estimated £113 million of visitor spend and £63 million net gross to the Scottish economy.

Robertson Chief Executive Officer Derek Shewan commented: "TECA will provide a huge boost to the North East, and we at Robertson are immensely proud to be the primary contractor on this iconic build. TECA, and its two on site hotels, constitute our largest major project to date, and seeing it take shape is hugely satisfying for everyone involved."

AECC and TECA Managing Director Nick Waight added: "It's great we're able to announce more details on the opening of TECA. We're really happy with how our event pipeline is coming on and look forward to bringing some exciting shows, conferences and exhibitions to the north east from next summer."
