Murray Restrup, Senior Architect at Archial, said about the Bon Accord building, “The brief for this project was to maximise the retail space for a single chain store tenant whilst increasing car parking for the centre as a whole.

The project also involved the creation of new landlord facilities and the re-configuration of service access to integrate the new retail space into the existing centre. Provision was made for services and access to facilitate the tenant’s fit out.”
