Hereford Cyber Security

Construction of a £9M centre to fight cyber crime

Project

Hereford Cyber Security

Speller Metcalfe has been contracted to build a new 2,245m2, multi-million-pound Centre for Cyber Security in Hereford.

Designed by Associated Architects, the scheme is a joint venture between the University of Wolverhampton and Herefordshire Council and will be built at Skylon Park in the Hereford Enterprise Zone.

The Hereford Centre for Cyber Security will provide a three-storey research space and teaching building for the University of Wolverhampton’s Cyber Security Research Institute as well as providing tenanted office space for up to 20 local cyber security businesses.

The shared facilities will allow private sector businesses to benefit from the university’s networks and expertise as well as make use of the centre’s specialist training rooms and laboratory spaces.
