The Rt Hon Ed Vaizey, MP for Didcot and Wantage and other leading local dignitaries took part in a groundbreaking ceremony to mark commencement of a new office and lab building at Harwell.
Leading Oxfordshire dignitaries attended a ground breaking ceremony to mark the commencement of construction of Quad One, a new office and laboratory building at Harwell Campus.
Quad One is the first building in the next 25-acre phase of Campus development and is set to attract science and technology businesses that are keen to locate themselves within a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment.
Our Oxford business space team are acting as agents and the build is being managed by our Project Management team.
The Quad One building will provide a total gross area of 40,000 sq ft of offices, labs and technical space, plus a gym and café. Designed by Hawkins Brown Architects, it forms one corner of a new public square to the front of Harwell, overlooking one of the Campus’ sports fields.
This new development starts in the same month as the recent Autumn Statement by the Government, which highlighted the important focus and investment that the UK is placing on innovation and infrastructure in the coming years. The building is programmed for completion in 2017.
