Client: Waters Corporation
A £33m headquarters in Cheshire has enabled Waters Corporation to consolidate four previous sites forming a multi-functioning assembly plant, office, research and development, sales and marketing facility.
The three-storey facility has provided a world class centre for innovation, including the latest customer demonstration laboratories, research and development capabilities and an expanded manufacturing capacity for mass spectrometry.
The surrounding landscape was transformed, creating a scenic setting with a Victorian sunken garden, a re-established pond, and a bat house. The neighbouring Altrincham Road, which connects the M56 motorway with east Cheshire, was restructured to accommodate the vast structure.
Terry Shortt, Waters’ Vice President of Global Quality Assurance said: “The project team in Manchester have worked on this project over the past number of years. VINCI Construction UK completed the build in eighteen months to the highest design, quality and control of costs. This is a truly wonderful achievement, my sincere thanks to the VINCI Construction UK team.”
