Willmott Dixon wins refurb job in Chester science park
Willmott Dixon has been appointed to refurbish a building that will house a multi-million pound Intelligent Energy System Demonstrator (IESD) project at University of Chester's Thornton Science Park.
The IESD, will be part of the Cheshire Science Corridor – an enterprise zone announced by the government last autumn and developed by Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership.
Refurbishment and construction of the facility is being project managed by Aecom and includes input from architect Ryder, engineer Arup and WYG as quantity surveyor. The project is expected to be completed by March 2017, allowing tenants to take occupancy in June 2017.
The refurbished building will provide offices and laboratory space for research and development into cost effective and benign sources of energy.
Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership is contributing £6.8m to the project.
