Addleshaw Goddard's Leeds construction team has completed the main building contract on behalf of Henry Boot Developments, a leading property developer, for the design and construction of a new £333m international exhibition and conference centre in Aberdeen.

The multimillion-pound development includes a new exhibition and conference centre, four-star hotel and energy centre. It is also expected to include a further hotel and 400,000 sq ft of business park space.

The scheme, which is a key element in Aberdeen's Strategic Infrastructure Plan, will further raise the profile of Aberdeen as a global city and is expected to attract 4.5 million additional visitors to the city, subsequently boosting the city's economy. The development is due to complete in the early part of 2019.

Managing Associate Ben Peecock, commented: "This is a significant transaction, which will play a vital part in the regeneration of Aberdeen and we are delighted to have been involved."

The team was led by Ben Peecock, with support from Katie Milner, Caroline Woodhouse and Dawn Smithies of the Construction, Engineering and Environment team.
