Stantec has been appointed to provide integrated design services for a £4bn ($5.06bn) battery manufacturing facility in the UK.

The facility is being developed by Agratas, Tata Group’s global battery business, at the Gravity Smart Campus.

Stantec’s integrated services will encompass architecture, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, structural, and civil engineering, alongside risk management, planning compliance, building information modelling management, and landscape architecture.

Comprising three separate buildings and ancillary structures, the manufacturing facility is expected to create up to 4,000 jobs and support the country’s green energy transition.

The facility will feature new technologies and resource-efficient processes to produce sustainable battery cells of high quality and performance, destined to power hundreds of thousands of electric vehicles.

Stantec president and CEO Gord Johnston said: “The Agratas facility will be pioneering in battery cell production, addressing demand in the advanced manufacturing space in the UK head on, while benefiting productivity, the climate, and the economy.
