Willmott Dixon is a leading national constructor of research and development facilities for science parks, supporting clients in creating better environments in which people and research can thrive.

By assisting our clients in unlocking value through funding and partnerships, and by using innovative construction techniques, we have been successfully creating research facilities from leading-edge new build private research and office buildings, to sensitively planning university science parks on already-occupied campuses.

Collaborative relationships 

Collaboration is important to us in our mission to support and develop innovative, high-growth, knowledge- based companies. We look for opportunities to share this knowledge and innovation. The science team are proactive individuals who look to share information on best practice and build mutually beneficial trusted relationships. Each project is approached with our clients’ goals at the forefront, to reduce risk and ensure that the research facility supports the needs of the researchers from day one. To create the highly technical buildings that sustain and build the UK’s world-class research environment, we work closely together with scientists and the project team.  We engage at the earliest possible opportunity to strengthen relationships and ensure we have clear understanding of the project requirements.

Positive engagement

Through our range of Scape frameworks, which provide a suite of OJEU-compliant options, we enable our clients to have a highly-skilled team rapidly in place, with the expertise and knowledge to take project responsibility from strategic asset appraisal through to project and service delivery. We engage and create a positive impact on the communities we serve. We invest locally, engaging, supporting, and educating both the scientific and the UK communities that these scientific and technological advances support. We create value for clients, stakeholders, and communities by taking a leadership role in the built environment, working in a sustainable and responsible way, and by making a positive impact in the lives of people in the UK. Working with the University of Leicester, our recent work with The Centre for Medicine demonstrates our commitment in creating the UK’s largest Passivhaus scheme.
