First Light Pavilion Construction

First Light at Jodrell Bank is a major new development at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and DCMS.

As part of the project, we are constructing a new Pavilion in the Discovery Centre gardens. The stunning new building, which has been designed by HASSELL, will blend beautifully into the surrounding landscape, and look like a circular ‘hill’, complete with green roof. You can read more about the designs and plans here…

The construction project is led by Kier and is a hugely exciting undertaking with a number of unique engineering elements and key milestones. The building is expected to open in 2021 and to help chart the build progress, we’ve been taking regular images of the construction site and sharing them online here.
