The Capitol redevelopment will see a 1930s art deco cinema redeveloped into Grade A office accommodation.

This landmark building where Aberdeen's public met to be entertained, will be restored, enhanced and extended to create a stunning working environment for modern office occupiers.

Development has commenced on site and the building will be ready for occupation in Q1 2015.

The Capitol development looks to both the history of the building and to the future. The plans not only allow for the refurbishment and reinstatement of original features, they create an energy efficient building which meets and exceeds modern standards.

The interior is being designed to the highest specification affording ingoing occupiers an excellent working environment and extensive car parking facilities.

The design makes full use of the existing grand entrance and the doors from Union Street will be reinstated.

The natural granite finish to the existing Capitol frontage is to be cleaned.

Existing balustrades will be refurbished and additional chrome handrails will be added within the foyer in the original style.

The canopy will be restored and the iconic signage on the front of the building reinstated.

Two large, art deco clocks from the auditorium will be refurbished and relocated to the front section of the building.
