WCN Editorial Team 3 Jul 2020 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Construction and engineering firm John Sisk & Son has signed a contract with developer Osborne+Co to construct a £150m new campus for Santander Bank in Milton Keynes, UK.

Upon completion, the Santander Technology Hub will be home to over 6,000 employees. It will bring together the bank’s employees from existing local office buildings into one location.

Sisk plans to start the construction work on-site immediately. Work on the project is scheduled for completion in 30 months.

John Sisk & Son UK South director Ajaz Shafi said: “This is a landmark project comprising of circa 500,000 square foot of ultra-modern office space constructed over an expansive double basement, which will benefit Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas enormously.

“We look forward to working in partnership with all our stakeholders and in particular the local community to create a lasting legacy that we can all be proud of.”

With an environmentally sustainable design, the new office will feature a fitness centre, cycle storage, and an employee rooftop walking and running track.

Osborne+Co official James Osborne said: “Osborne+Co and Sisk have worked tirelessly together for the past several months to reach this point.

“From the very first engagement, the Sisk team at all levels has abided by the highest standards of transparency and have operated with a spirit of true partnership.

“Throughout the bid and negotiation process, the Sisk team continuously strove to find ways to deliver more economically and improve buildability without compromising on the final quality of what we will deliver.”

Last year, the City of York Council selected John Sisk & Son as construction partner to deliver enabling infrastructure works worth up to £155m for the York Central project.
