Anglesey gets steel-framed science park
Steelwork erection has been completed on phase one of the Menai Science Park on Anglesey.
Being built for a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bangor University, it is hoped the park will drive growth in knowledge-based science, low carbon energy, the environment and computing sectors.
Working for main contractor Willmott Dixon, EvadX has erected 500t of steel for phase one which consists of a 5,000m² three-storey building.
Aiming to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, the building will comprise offices, laboratory and workshop space for up to 700 people. It will form the hub for the entire park and become an important regional centre for a range of businesses from start-ups to large corporate companies.
Ieuan Wyn Jones, Executive Director of the park said, “The science park will create a bridge between innovative companies and Bangor University. We are already in advanced discussions with a number of potential tenants from a range of sectors. This project ties in with many on-going economic strategies and comes at an opportune time to link with other ongoing projects in the region.”
