Core Five’s 21 for 21 Project 11 Oxford Science Park – Plot 16 for The Oxford Science Park
The Oxford Science Park was created in 1991 and is owned and managed by Magdalen College Oxford, one of Oxford’s oldest and most famous colleges with a tradition of academic excellence and entrepreneurship.
Plot 16 provides over 200,000sqft of flexible high quality office and lab space, efficiently designed to make best use of the plot, driven to competitive building metrics for labs and maximising the countryside setting with access to the Littlemore brook, exemplar landscaping, roof terraces and plaza, all with the ability to connect to the future rail station and becoming the future gateway to the park.
Core Five are carrying out full cost management duties which has included a comprehensive option appraisal on layout and site configuration, through to elemental cost modelling, cost planning and market testing of the design. Tender documents have been prepared and contractors prequalified for tendering in the early 2021.
