Diamond Light Source

Spectrum were appointed by Interserve to deliver the external envelope package on an £8 million advanced experimental station and electron microscopy facility at Diamond Light Source on the Harwell Campus in Oxfordshire.

Diamond Light Source is the UK’s national synchrotron science facility. It accelerates electrons to produce bright X-ray light that is then fed to 24 experimental stations known as “beamlines” where it is used by scientists to research fields as diverse as fossils and viruses.

Spectrum’s scope of work included the standing seam roofing, steel framing system, backing wall, ACM rainscreen cladding, bullnose fascias, column casings and rainwater goods.

Key to Spectrum’s appointment was our experience in high value and complex commercial projects, together with our product knowledge and design expertise.
