This four storey office block with six workshops linked by a fully glazed reception cube is being used as a flagship development for MIRA’s £300 million Technology Park
The building was the first new building to be completed since the MIRA site was granted enterprise zone status in August 2011.
After tendering against national contractors, we gained Preferred Contractor status and were tasked to work with the client’s team, achieving Value Engineering solutions totalling £1 million.
The offices associated with the Control Centre were constructed with an insitu concrete frame, proprietary cladding, curtain walling, brickwork and a Bauder flat roof. The mechanical services were designed to supplement the thermal mass of the insitu concrete frame and natural ventilation.
The internal finishes of the buildings, in particular the offices, were to a very high quality to satisfy MIRA’s requirements to provide an exemplar project for their Technology Park.
The major constraint on this project was working within MIRA’s strict security protocols and ensuring that our construction work did not affect MIRA’s business operations
"The opening of MIRA's Technology Park is excellent news for the Midlands. It has the potential to become Europe's largest independent transport research and development (R&D) cluster."
