Building and civil engineering firm Construction Partnership UK (CPUK Group) has secured a £3m contract to create a new research and development facility in Warrington for lubricant industry manufacturer Rock Oil.
The 10,000 sq ft centre, forming part of a major redevelopment of the company’s Cheshire operations, will house staff from across Rock Oil’s technical, marketing, sales and senior management departments.
Further, the facility’s laboratory will contain over £1m worth of advanced technical equipment, which Rock Oil hopes will place it at the cutting edge of the lubricants industry.
The three storey scheme was designed by Liverpool architects Falconer Chester Hall and will contain new office space in addition to the lab.
The project’s building phase is forecast to take 34 weeks to complete.
