The replacement for the roof of the circular synchotron research building

The replacement for the roof of the circular synchotron research building is now being invited for bidding from contractors. There is an activity of electrons acceleration near to light speed that happens in the building.

The existing aluminum standing seam roof is being planned for replacement by Owner Diamond Light Source. This is yet to take place at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.

The job is published as an OJEU notice. The existing roof has been beset with problems due to thermal movement after being fitted by Lakesmere in 2006. With the collapse of Lakesmere, the facility’s main building contractor Costain was forced to make a £10m provision following an arbitration ruling to cover remedial works.

Diamond Light Source (DLS) as the client has decided to strip off the entire 32,000m2 roof on the doughnut-shaped electron accelerator.
