Architect is appointed for science park development.
MENAI Science Park Ltd has appointed FaulknerBrowns as architects for its proposed M-SParc development at Gaerwen on Anglesey.
The award-winning practice based in Newcastle will focus initially on the overall design and detail for the first building proposed at the site.
The work undertaken by the architectural practice will inform the full planning application to be submitted to Anglesey Council, following the project's recent granting of outline planning approval.
Representatives from M-SParc will also be presenting the latest developments in the park's progress at the UK Science Park Association annual conference in Dublin today.
M-SParc's 30-year vision is based on creating highly skilled long-term employment opportunities for local people, developing a knowledge sharing environment and creating an economic hub in sectors such as low carbon, energy and environment and ICT. The park would create a bridge between such companies and Bangor University, owners of M-SParc.
Pryderi ap Rhisiart, Project Manager, Menai Science Park Ltd, said: "M-SParc, as the name implies, aims to provide a spark to not only ignite innovation and entrepreneurship across North Wales, but also to create an exciting and unique environment for companies and employees alike.
"The project's ethos has sustainability at its core and will be built on sound environmental principles. We look forward to delivering this vision alongside FaulknerBrowns as their appointment is a major step forward in the future development of the science park. The assembled team has already successfully delivered a number of similar projects including high growth centres, innovation and science research buildings across both science parks and university campuses."
