Completed on time within 8% of budget in June 2019, the Energetics Analysis Centre is a state-of-the-art building used by hundreds of scientists to conduct world-class research and analysis which give the UK military and security advantage, protecting against terrorist and criminal threats.
The 7,283m2 T-shaped building is arranged over three levels, with two floors of state-of-the-art chemical laboratories, workshops, offices, meeting rooms, welfare facilities and storage, and a roof-level plant floor.  The steel-framed, flat-roof structure is finished with coloured metal cladding and curtain-wall glazing.
This was a project that Hunter Bayfield have been heavily involved with through our client Pick Everard, providing programme analysis services to the Project Manager for this new facility.  It was part of the NEC-procured £125 million Helios programme to relocate DSTL facilities from Sevenoaks in Kent, to Porton Down, Wiltshire.
During their visit, the Queen and Prince William met staff who have been providing specialist scientific advice and support to the COVID-19 pandemic and those involved in providing a rapid operational response to the Novichok incident in 2018.  The expert team’s impact extends across Government, reaching the Ministry of Defence, Home Office, Department for Transport and other agencies.
