TLT has advised iconic technology and engineering hub, Sci-Tech Daresbury, on its plans to build 42,000 sq ft of Grade A office space to help support the local economy.
The scheme will see the construction of two buildings providing 12,000 sq ft each and one building providing 18,000 sq ft, as well as major landscaping improvements around the site.
This marks the latest phase in the expansion of the world-leading science and innovation campus, which was formed in 2006 and became a public private joint venture between developers Langtree, the Science and Technology Facilities Council and Halton Borough Council in 2010.
The new £15m office development will help to continue Sci-Tech’s mission to drive discovery, open up new commercial opportunities and deliver high value jobs and sustainable economic growth.
TLT partner Jahanara Hussain advised Sci-Tech Daresbury on the construction agreements.
The project is funded by the Chrysalis Fund (part of the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership) as part of wider, ongoing work to kick start redevelopment in the region.
John Downes, chief executive of property firm Langtree and chairman of Sci-Tech Daresbury, says: “These buildings will provide critical space for businesses in the coming years and we are looking forward to bringing them to market. We are grateful to Jahanara for her hard work and for helping us to continue our mission to bring high tech businesses together and deliver growth.”
Jahanara Hussain, partner at TLT, says: “Sci-Tech Daresbury has created an important place where nearly 150 of some of the UK’s most innovative companies are currently based. I am delighted to be supporting them with this next phase of their development.”
