M-SParc takes shape
The final phase of steel girders being lifted into place has started as a £20m Anglesey science park begins to take shape.
The Menai Science Park (M-SParc) development, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bangor University, will be completed in early 2018 and is already attracting interest from potential tenants.
M-SParc involves the design of a new building featuring three-storey tenant space and adjoining two-storey open innovation space.
In total, there will be 5,000 sq m of offices, a laboratory, and workshop. It will have a capacity of 200 people on the first phase.
M-SParc will have a broad focus on the low carbon and renewable energy sectors, and aims to bring economic, scientific, and technological benefits to the region.
There will be 615 sq m of window space looking towards Snowdonia, approximately 79,300 bricks used on the main building, and 965m3 of concrete.
