Following the successful completion of the Technology Hub for the STFC Interserve was awarded the Accelerator Science and Technology Centre refurbishment project at Sci-Tec Daresbury.

Accelerator Science and Technology Centre RefurbishmentThe new facility provides an environment for scientists, researchers and industry to perform cutting-edge research in fields such as accelerator science including the development of a prototype for future particle accelerators that offer the prospects of new cancer treatments.

The aim of the project was to create a tightly controlled internal environment to plus or minus 2 degrees to ensure experiments can operate all year round. This was achieved by installing a new Heating Ventilation and Air-Conditioning Systems recladding to improve the building’s thermal performance. Before the new cladding works could commence all of the existing asbestos sheeting needed to be removed. To further improve the building’s performance we stripped back the existing roof and installed a new standing seam roof over both the Outer and Inner halls. To give you an idea of scale this roof is the equivalent to the pitch at Wembley stadium. To ensure that the laboratory could still function as normal below us, we erected a rolling roof which was the first to be installed within the North West region.

Accelerator Science and Technology Centre RefurbishmentThe refurbishment was undertaken within a live environment without disruption to scientific research and was delivered early, to budget and to an optimum quality, despite the complexities of the working environment.
