Education, Science & Technology

The UK government have committed to investing 3% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to science and technology by 2027, with a mission statement that would keep the United Kingdom competing on the global stage.

CPC’s Education, Science & Technology team has been supporting and driving the delivery of scientific and technological facilities to UK agencies for over ten years.

Recent schemes include the delivery of the £38m National Quantum Computing Centre to the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), as well as supporting the decant, refurbishment and demolition of various sites across Harwell’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Campus.

Our experience and sector knowledge continues to grow and build upon the delivery of major research facilities in the education sector, including Oxford University’s Big Data Institute, a £50m facility storing, analysing and processing vast amounts of bioinformatical digital data with the aim of providing new insights into illnesses and treatments worldwide.
