Safety first: Work has started on site at this £56m PFI facility for the Health and Safety Laboratory in Buxton, Derbyshire. The development consolidates the centre’s Buxton and Sheffield laboratories and offices. The PFI contract was won by a consortium including contractors Shepherd and Interserve, the Rotch Property Group and HSBC Infrastructure. The 22,000 m2 facility, on the outskirts of Buxton, will be a collection of two- and three-storey buildings. It is due for completion in spring 2005.
