Laing O'Rourke wins £100M research hub

Laing O’Rourke is to build a £100M science and engineering research hub in London.

The contractor will build the Imperial West Research and Translation Hub in White City for developer Voreda and Imperial College London.

The 48,000 sq m Hub will deliver education, research and translation activities, providing multi-disciplinary research space for 1,000 scientists and engineers.

Laing O’Rourke will start on site next month, with completion scheduled for summer 2016.

The contractor’s leader for construction UK Steve Coleby said: “We are delighted to be working with Voreda and at Imperial College London on a development of such significance for research and business in the UK. 

“Laing O’Rourke’s innovative approach to manufacturing and construction techniques, along with our direct delivery capability, serves as a fantastic complement to the scheme’s overall vision for being a world-class innovation hub.”
