International construction and consultancy company Mace has been appointed by the Science and Technology Facilities Council to deliver the Extreme Photonics Applications Centre on the Harwell campus in Oxfordshire. The EPAC development is a new purpose-designed building that will house a unique, state-of-the-art high power and high repetition laser system. Mace was appointed on this project through the Southern Construction Framework. The government has announced a £81m investment in the EPAC, with funding provided through the R&D-focused Strategic Priorities Fund.

The appointment follows Mace’s recent successful work on two other research projects for the STFC on the Harwell campus, including the National Satellite Test Facility and the Rosalind Franklin Institute.

The centre will help researchers and industry better understand the composition of new materials and how they behave in different conditions. It is a highly strategic, disruptive technology and directly supports the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy.

Mace will work with the STFC, designers, a global concrete specialist and our supply chain partners to deliver the whole project, including the experimental areas of the building where high intensity lasers will be tested.
