Multitechnical energy and communications services provider SPIE UK has been appointed by Bruntwood SciTech to design and refurbish services at its world-leading science campus at Alderley Park, Cheshire.
The facility, a joint venture between property company Bruntwood and Legal & General, is the UK’s largest single-site life sciences campus. It works in strategic partnership with city councils, universities and NHS trusts to drive inclusive, sustainable economic growth through investment in science and technology infrastructure.
Under the contract, SPIE will be carrying out a wide range of works on Block No. 50, including designing and renovating the basement plant room, the first and second floors, and the level 3 roof area. Its team will provide general and specialised mechanical, engineering, and plumbing services (MEP) in the laboratory space, as well as category A and B, works.
Category A will focus on the condition of the existing primary MEP services, and category B involves the full fit-out and modifications required to adjust the current layout to the client’s needs.
Steven Farmer, divisional managing director at SPIE UK, said: “Having built a strong relationship with Bruntwood SciTech over several successful schemes at Alderley Park, we’re excited to showcase our expertise once again by using our collective MEP skills, applying best design practice and full compliance with the relevant codes of practice and legislation to deliver a functional and efficient infrastructure.”
Chris Ripper, project manager at Bruntwood SciTech, added: “As part of a highly validated industry facing rigorous regulatory requirements, we’re delighted to work once more with SPIE UK.”
