Construction begins on the next phase of development at Begbroke Science Park


The next phase of development at Begbroke Science Park is scheduled to begin upon Mace’s appointment to lead the project. The London-headquartered global consultancy and construction firm has been selected by Oxford University Property Development (OUPD). The latter is the project developer and a joint venture between Oxford University and Legal & General.

As part of the project, Mace will build 135,000 square feet of new research facilities for the University of Oxford. The two structures were created by nbbj architects to meet demanding sustainability criteria such as BREEAM Excellent and WELL Gold Enabled. A new cycle path link is also being developed between Begbroke Science Park and Kidlington. In addition, there will be a public artwork by Turner Prize-winning artist collective Assemble.

Search for construction managers

The academic staff of the university will move into one building. Companies that want to expand and establish contacts with science, on the other hand, will switch to the second structure. Early 2024 is the projected date for the practical completion of the next phase of Begbroke Science Park.

This contract is the first in a series of £100m projects to expand the science park. Eventually, the projects will add a total of another 135,000 square feet of space.

Plans in the pipeline to drive broader development outside of Begbroke Science Park

OUPD is reportedly developing plans to encourage broader development outside of the current science park boundaries. These plans are being developed in consultation with the local community and Cherwell District Council. They consist of the development of housing, additional research and development facilities and commercial space.

The structure of the project was created by Oxford University Development (OUD), the delivery arm of OUPD. In addition, the Begbroke Science Park project is collaborating with Bruntwood SciTech and Oxford University. Legal & General placed the order and will take care of the delivery.

Managing Director Construction (PREACH). morning star, Terry Spraggett, stated: “We will leverage our track record and experience in building the UK’s newest scientific test facilities in the fields of electronics, satellites and medical research in close collaboration with the University of Oxford and L&G to open up new research spaces to this prestigious academic Institution. We deliver the science park buildings according to the highest sustainability and quality standards. This is achieved by assembling a multidisciplinary team.”
