Tender process starts for Merseyside science park offices

December 18, 2018 by NSC in Weekly News
Sci-Tech Daresbury has started the tender process for the selection of a contractor to build its new 4,000m² Grade A office complex near Liverpool.

The scheme, Project Violet, which received planning consent from Halton Borough Council in February this year, is the construction of two three-storey commercial office buildings.

Each building will provide open-plan floorplates and, as part of the work, there will be major landscaping improvements around the site.

There is also to be 140 dedicated car parking spaces directly adjacent to the buildings with level access provided throughout the site. The buildings will be built to achieve a minimum BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’.

Neal Biddle, Group Development Director of Langtree and Board Member of the Sci-Tech Daresbury joint venture company, said: “Project Violet is the latest phase in the expansion of our award-winning Sci-Tech Daresbury site, providing new buildings that continue to support the growing demand to accommodate science, research and innovation businesses.

“We have over the last two years substantially upgraded and expanded the campus and this further development underlines not only our on-going success, but also our commitment to the region and the market demand for what we are proposing.

“The campus is now home to more than 130 businesses and we have regular enquiries from others looking to relocate or start, so the need for this space is critical and the plan is for work to start next summer, completing 12 months later.”
