AECOM led a multi-disciplinary engineering team for Diageo, to create one the largest malt whiskey distilleries in Elgin, Scotland, U.K.
The award-winning US$60-million Roseisle distillery has been recognized across numerous industries and sets a new standard in building design and sustainable credentials.
For the design, AECOM used structure-, architecture- and production-combined BIM to assist with the design of the facility. AECOM provided all non-process consultancy services for the award-winning distillery, which was recently recognized by the Institution of Civil Engineers and is certified as “Excellent” under the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM).
AECOM was commissioned to lead the business services design, and the project has positioned us as a world leader in media design. It has involved refurbishing the original 1932 Grade II* listed Broadcasting House, and building a high-tech, 13-floor extension. Recently completed, the centre was opened by Her Majesty The Queen.
The renamed East London Railway was part of Transport for London’s Five Year Investment Program, the East London Line is being extended in two phases and AECOM became involved in 2010 with the Program Cost Consultancy experts delivering cost management services for this project. As lead designer with the Balfour Beatty/Carillion Joint Venture, AECOM produced the detailed construction design for new stations, buildings, civils and structure works including architecture, landscaping, geotechnics, electrical and mechanical services.
AECOM developed a strategic brief and design for a new project hall, housing approximately 400 people working on Rolls-Royce’s newest engine project – Trent XWB, the world’s most efficient jet engine. In addition to workplace briefing and design, AECOM also provided change management support to ensure that teams moving into the new workspace were prepared to embrace new ways of working and driving maximum value for the project as a whole.
AECOM has been involved with the project for the past five years, delivering a range of technical advisory services for the exciting programme. The tight timescale for erecting the Serpentine Pavilion always makes the project a particularly rewarding scheme to deliver. From the first spade hitting the ground to completion, the Serpentine Pavilion is typically built and delivered in around six weeks.
