This is North Wales’ first dedicated science park, providing creative workspaces specifically for businesses working in low carbon energy, sustainability and IT. With views out over Snowdonia, it is a symbol of progress. The pride displayed by the client towards this building, and the genuine relationship formed with the design team, were really critical to the successful result. The early and detailed design process has been an integral part of this relationship’s successful development, with the architect sharing each step of the journey to foster ownership of the scheme by all those involved. The building provides a frame for an animated mix of uses by both the public and external organisations.
