Project: Daresbury Sci-Tech
Client: Galliford Try
This project consists of two new office and laboratory buildings totalling 56,000 sq ft at Sci-Tech Daresbury, the Cheshire science and innovation park. As part of the project, Genlec delivered a full M&E package for the main contractor, Galliford Try, across a 42 week period.
The accommodation at Daresbury Sci-Tech provides space for up to 350 workers. The site was developed to attract companies from sectors such as biomedical, material science and clean technology.
The two buildings, named Techspace One and Techspace Two, together provide 56,000 sq ft of Grade A office and laboratory space at the Sci-Tech Daresbury Enterprise Zone.
Both buildings required detailed mechanical and electrical design packages, addressing both the needs of the potential end user and the flexible nature of the floor space.
“Daresbury Sci Tech is an incredibly high tech state of the art building whose future tenants will require the most up to date and future proof M&E infrastructure. We were able to work closely with the main contractor during the design phase through to installation and final delivery to provide an M&E package that enhances and reflects both the nature of the scheme and the future needs of the tenants.”Jonathan Twentyman, Managing Director at Genlec
Techspace One is a three-storey 46,000 sq ft building consisting of Grade A office space along with wet and dry laboratory facilities, each on its own separate floor. The building includes high-speed internet connectivity throughout and will provide accommodation of between 900 sq ft and 2,400 sq ft along with high-quality communal areas and meeting rooms.
The ground and first floors of Techspace One will be home to 16 separate laboratory units of between 900 sq ft and 2,000 sq ft. The first floor laboratories will be capable of being fitted out to Class 2 containment.
The second floor will be home to nine high-quality Grade A office suites ranging between 900 sq ft and 2,400 sq ft. Support packages to assist with internal fit-out are available for both the laboratories and the office space.
Techspace Two is a two-storey self-contained Grade A office building providing 10,000 sq ft of space which could be divided into a maximum of four individual suites. It will provide companies from sectors such as digital/ ICT, advanced engineering and clean technology with their own ‘front door’ at Sci-Tech Daresbury.
