TÜV SÜD delivered the refurbishment of the iconic Marischal College in Aberdeen the Headquarters for Aberdeen City Council.

The Marischal College project has involved the façade retention of the second largest granite façade in Europe with the view of providing over 200,000ft2 of head office accommodation.

The works involved the collation of many council departments from various buildings into one campus style building to provide the public with a one stop shop. IES dynamic simulation software was used to model and test a number of energy reducing design options for the site.

The building which is one of the largest Granite structures in Europe offered natural insulation valves which were taken into full account in the thermal designs.

The design solution included; a water source heat pump system for heating and cooling, low energy internal and external light fittings, low flow water fixtures and an improved indoor environment quality due to increased outside air rates and thermal comfort optimisation.
