Sasanbell has been chosen to design the UK's "most sustainable facility:" the £200 million Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre (AECC). The Glasgow-based company will provide a new home for the city's existing exhibition and conference center, which will be redeveloped by Cooper Cromar, freeing up space for future development and providing a sizable venue that can accommodate "large and popular events."

"The new AECC facility is a vital element of Aberdeen's future growth and development, not least as a World Energy City and the Energy Capital of Europe,” explained Nick Harris of Henry Boot Developments, the project’s developer. “Therefore, the new conference centre and associated facilities will be developed with the ambition to make it the most sustainable facility of its kind in the UK.”
