The University of Aberdeen, established in 1495, is the fifth oldest English-language University in the world. Careys Civil Engineering was contracted to deliver concrete works on the new superstructure, comprising more than 15,000m2 of floorspace that would host over a quarter of a million books, maps and manuscripts, as well as 1,200 reader spaces in a variety of environments where cutting edge technologies are available. Additionally, Special Libraries and Archives offer historical collections in connection to a secure rare books reading room.

Our team completed the ground floor slab, concrete cores, retaining walls and suspended slabs, in addition to constructing in-situ reinforced concrete basement walls, columns, podium deck and two nine-storey cores (both containing nine cells) resulting in 3,000m3 of concrete being poured.
