The contractor Russell Cawberry has been appointed to construct the new laboratory. They will work alongside the tunnel contractor, Quadratec to build the facility.
The expected start date for these works is 14th July with completion by the end of October 2016.
For users of the Gun Tunnel and ISP, there will be a period of disruption whilst the Nitrogen tank gets re-located and the entrance way built. Both of these events will be discussed with users and programmed to minimise downtime or other disturbance.
