New four-storey building providing expanded office capacity for UKAEA.

The new facility provides expanded office capacity with agile working space, new shared meeting amenities and collaborative breakout areas. In addition, it also features a new staff canteen and coffee bar, external plaza space, and car parking provision located at the site entrance.


Construction of a 72,689sqft office building arranged in a L shape to provide two dual aspect office wings to the east and south, wrapping around a centralised core and atrium.

The design ethos of the new office building is based around efficiency, adaptability and flexibility, identity, wellness, innovation, and sustainability. The building has achieved this vision, providing a flexible office environment that can be easily modified according to future needs and conditions. The central shared atrium space promotes wellbeing for it’s occupants and encourages innovation through collaboration.

External works also included the construction of two multi-storey car parks, the installation of incoming utilities, and the creation of a central landscape square and ‘garden’ spaces for staff and visitors.

This project is a demonstration of our ability to run concurrent projects for the Client across multiple sites on the one campus. Simultaneously with this project, we are also delivering the Oxfordshire Advanced Skills (OAS) Phase 3 and Main Gate projects. To ensure smooth progression of the concurrent works, weekly coordination meetings are attended by our Site Liaison Officer. Maintaining the operations of the live campus is one of the most important elements of the project.

This was the third scheme awarded to us through the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Framework Construction Works & Associated Services.
