CMS Window Systems has played a key role in the manufacture and installation of thermally-efficient curtain walling, windows and doors for Emerson Process Management’s new facility at the new D2 business park, Aberdeen.

Emerson is one of the world’s foremost names in engineering services across a wide range of industrial and commercial markets, and places high value on the efficiency and integrity of its staff, operations and facilities.Efficiency, therefore, was a high priority when Emerson Process Management – a branch of the company which focuses on developing problem-solving technologies and services for industrial businesses – acquired a site at the D2 business park in Dyce, Aberdeen to support its work with the North Sea oil and gas industry.

CMS was appointed by main contractor Bowmer & Kirkland to design, manufacture and install curtain walling, windows and doors for the facility. The £20 million development, built to replace Emerson’s existing Aberdeen headquarters in nearby Kirkhill, comprises 2,600 m2 of office space, as well as a 3,065m2 service centre with meeting facilities and a customer collaboration suite, and can accommodate up to 200 Emerson personnel. Reflecting this code of efficiency, the facility adheres to exacting thermal performance standards and complying with the latest requirements of current building regulations. With site development overseen by Miller and construction completed by Bowmer & Kirkland, work on Emerson’s new Aberdeen premises began in June 2014, with CMS joining the project in February 2015.

The solutions delivered by CMS were chosen to enhance the efficiency of the building’s envelope, reducing heat transfer while allowing the entry of natural light. Aluminium curtain walling created using Metal Technology’s System 17 ensures the building adheres to exacting thermal performance standards. With a continuous thermal isolator providing a thermal break throughout the system, as well as 6mm toughened Planitherm Ultra N glass used in conjunction with 16mm Swisspacer V warm edge spacer, the system is compliant with the latest thermal requirements of current building regulations.

Since planning consent was granted in 2012, D2 has become one of the biggest mixed use developments in Scotland for many years, aiming to support industry in the area with its versatile premises and convenient transport links. Emerson’s cutting-edge new site on the park forms part of this; Stuart Brown, General Manager of Emerson Process Management UK and Ireland, said: “[c]onsolidating three existing facilities in the Dyce area into a single leading-edge building close to the Aberdeen airport demonstrates Emerson’s commitment to support our Scotland and North Sea customers.”

The D2 development has also achieved wider recognition at the tail end of 2015 as it has been named as a finalist for the Architectural Excellence Award (Commercial Buildings) in the 2016 Scottish Property Awards.
