LSP is home to more than 70 science and knowledge sector companies in the city. It is a joint venture between Liverpool John Moores University, the University of Liverpool and Liverpool City Council.

Morgan Sindall will build a new four-storey office block, to be named Innovation Centre 3 (ic3). The new building will be built on a 0.55 hectare site over the existing car park of Innovation Centre 1(ic1) and will provide 3,750m2 of office and laboratory facilities, spanning across all four floors.

The new office block, designed by Ryder Architecture, will feature full length windows to maximize natural light and will be connected to the existing ic1 building by a double-storey bridge.

Work has now started on site and the project is due to complete in spring 2014.

LSP chief executive Chris Musson said: “Building ic3 marks the next exciting stage of growth at the park and will really help to drive forward Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter.”
