Aberystwyth University seeks contractor to join AECOM on £30m Innovation and Enterprise Campus
Posted on: 22/08/2016

Aberystwyth University has begun the search for a contractor to commence construction on the £30m Innovation and Enterprise Campus, otherwise known as The Hub. The selected contractor will join AECOM Professional Services who are providing project and cost management services for the project, located on the University’s Gogerddan campus outside Aberystwyth.

The Hub will consist of five building elements procured by the University and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council and will be used for high-level research into food, nutrition and energy security, renewable energies and biotechnologies. Facilities will include a seed bio-bank and processing facility, a bio-refining centre, an advanced analytical science centre and a future food centre.

Gogerddan is also the home of the National Plant Phenomics Centre, the most advanced research greenhouse in the UK. Due to their world-class research into the fields of agriculture, nutrition and energy, the Campus will also include a commercially focussed training centre to help develop the bio-economy

Aberystwyth University believes “The Aberystwyth Innovation and Enterprise Campus at Gogerddan will bring great benefit to the economy and society, from the local to the global, by harnessing Aberystwyth’s unique natural resources of people and place, and its interdisciplinary capabilities. New infrastructure and facilities will be developed to attract companies and researchers interested in creating commercially viable new products, based on modern approaches to plant breeding.”
