Much of the population is likely unaware of the village of Daresbury, tucked away though it is in a prime location in the Liverpool City Region between Runcorn,  Warrington, Manchester and Liverpool. However those in certain industries will be well aware of its presence, as it has since 2006 been home to the Sci-Tech Daresbury National Science and Innovation Campus, which provides office and lab space for businesses both small and large.

Already praised as a world-class science, innovation and enterprise hub, Sci-Tech Daresbury now looks set to grow once again as Halton Borough Council has given planning permission for the construction of three new three-storey buildings on Innovation Way as part of ‘Project Violet’, which will deliver a further  42,000sq. ft. of grade-A office space to the area.

The works carry an estimated cost of around £12m, with construction expected to begin later this year; if all goes to plan the new office space should be open and available to rent 12 months later.

Sci-Tech Daresbury board member Neal Biddle commented, “This is excellent news - Project Violet will deliver much-needed grade A office space in the region and underlines our commitment to building on Sci-Tech Daresbury’s reputation as a place where ambitious businesses can achieve success.

“We believe these physical developments will help address a shortfall of space in the region and support the expansion of the wide range of businesses based on technology and innovation already thriving at Sci-Tech Daresbury.”
