Sci-Tech Daresbury

A joint venture between STFC, Halton Borough Council and developers Langtree, Sci-Tech Daresbury enables even the smallest start-ups to work side-by-side with successful and influential international companies.

Home to over 130 science/research organisations and high-tech businesses (view the business directory), the campus’ sector strengths are:

  • Advanced engineering and materials
  • Biomedical and healthcare
  • Digital

Much of the strength of Sci-Tech Daresbury is rooted in the facilities and capabilities based at STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory – a key component of the campus. These include:

Sci-Tech Daresbury also houses:

  • The Innovation Centre, office and laboratory space for high-tech SMEs and a high-quality venue for business interaction
  • Vanguard House, office, laboratory and workshop space for high-growth businesses
  • Techspace One, high quality laboratory and office facilities for companies developing or upscaling their business
  • Techspace Two, office building for developing and scaling technology companies requiring their “own front door”

Project Violet is the next phase of speculative development at Sci-Tech Daresbury, and will be a 42,000 sq ft grade A office complex.

The location on campus alongside world-class science facilities and organisations is playing a key part in helping companies to thrive.
