The Harwell Science & Innovation Campus Limited Partnership
At 710 acres, The Harwell Campus is the largest science campus in the UK and is the only location in the world with a collection of large-scale scientific equipment, making it of national significance.
It is home to over 250 public sector organisations and the UK’s largest space cluster of 60+organisations. We have been involved with the science community on a daily basis and have an in-depth understanding of this complex market, which is important to Oxfordshire’s growth.
What we did
We acted as business space agents, involving guidance on the form of new buildings, fielding enquiries, scouting for occupiers in target sectors and negotiating property transactions
We project managed Quad One, a new-build 37+ sq ft , three storey office and laboratory building. It is the first of four buildings set around a new quadrangle.
We found solutions to ecological and landscape challenges
Bidwells are intrinsically involved with the success of the Harwell Campus, from the form of new development to delivering new buildings
We developed an envelope design which was both affordable and desirable to the client and Local Planning Authority
We established a robust tender contract to fix construction costs, reduce risk and meet client expectations
In view of our involvement with Harwell, we have been invited to join groups interested in the growth of Oxfordshire’s knowledge economy, sitting alongside universities and other stakeholders.
