In line with Liverpool Science Park’s ongoing commitment to reinvest into their buildings under new owners Sciontec Liverpool, a major capital works project is underway which will significantly improve the main access point into the innovation centre, provide flexible indoor co-working and communal spaces, plus an adjoining outside seating area.

Due for completion in March 2021, the transformational work is the first major project undertaken by Sciontec Liverpool, with other development schemes being planned across the next five years.

May 2020 saw Bruntwood SciTech join Sciontec as a 25% shareholder, in a £12m deal that has been a catalyst for growth within the science and tech sector in Liverpool City Region.

Professor Dame Janet Beer, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Liverpool and Chair of Sciontec Liverpool, said: “Sciontec Liverpool, now with Bruntwood SciTech as an investor, demonstrates that private and public partnership works. It has commitment, momentum, capacity and delivery potential but more importantly, it is unique to Liverpool, yet now part of a much bigger national picture. Our strengths in fighting infection and disease, digital health, personalised medicine and civic data, materials chemistry, robotics, big data and artificial intelligence will be even more relevant as we move to the recovery phase which will follow the current crisis.”

In April 2020, Liverpool Science Park took over the Facilities Management for Sensor City, which was the first step in creating a shared service platform across all of Liverpool’s science and tech assets.
