Plans for the 7.8-hectare Menai Science Parc (M-SParc) were submitted in December 2014 with Anglesey Council granting outline permission in May 2015. The Welsh Government provided £10 million of funding with a further £10 million grant from the EU’s European Regional Development Funding allowing the first phase of the development to proceed. Construction started in 2016.
The flagship building, one of a planned total of eight on the park, was designed by Newcastle-based architects FaulknerBrowns and will provide 5,000 square metres of office, laboratory and workshop space to a number of business tenants. It is planned to open in April 2018.
The M-SParc company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bangor University.
