Caddick Construction has been appointed to deliver a new multi-storey car park at Bruntwood SciTech’s Alderley Park in Cheshire.
The Caddick’s team is already on site delivering the £6.8million refurbishment and expansion of No.21 Mereside - a flagship four-storey laboratories and offices, it will also provide a reception area befitting this leading science facility.
Located less than 20 miles from Manchester city centre and within 20 minutes’ drive of Manchester Airport, Alderley Park is home to the UK’s largest single site bioscience campus, alongside 150,000 sq ft of contemporary workspace for forward-thinking, tech focussed companies.
Undertaking the work on behalf of Alderley Park, Caddick is constructing a 2,227 space, seven-storey car park, which will include disabled spaces and electric vehicle charging points.
Materials used will be of a high quality chosen to reflect the surrounding natural environment. Clad in vertical feature fins to mirror the cladding of the opposite building, elevations are further broken with a mix of façade treatments to provide visual interest, variation and softness, alongside the adjacent woodland, including a mix of a living green wall and a climbing plant system. Landscaping work to improve the public realm, green space, and pedestrian environment will also be delivered.
Conor Vallelly, Avison Young, said: “Alderley Park is a critical component in the Cheshire Science Corridor and is globally important for life sciences and technology. The Caddick team are delivering a high-quality transformation of the facility and this new car park project will help to build on the continued success of the site to the Borough.”
Ian Threadgold, Regional Managing Director at Caddick Construction, said: “Working at Alderley Park has given the team the opportunity to create world-class laboratory space. We are delighted to continue at the site delivering supporting infrastructure to ensure the site continues to thrive.”
