The combined research, development, and production facility in Oxfordshire will provide superconducting magnets used in MRI systems.
Designed by Leicestershire architect SGP, the facility will cost around £80m to build and provide approximately 670 construction jobs over the two-year build programme.
The building will be bespoke to Siemens Healthineers’ design and production process and delivered to net zero carbon in construction.
It has been designed to achieve a minimum rating of BREEAM Excellent and will incorporate substantial solar Photo Voltaic (PV) coverage on the roof.
Jonathan Dawes, planning director at Tritax Symmetry, said: “Since the site was identified by Siemens Healthineers, we have undertaken a thorough public consultation and have continued to liaise with local planning officers throughout the process.”
Ralph Seidler, managing director of Siemens Healthineers Magnet Technology, Oxford, added: “Subject to a positive planning outcome we will commence a phased transition from Eynsham to Oxford North, with changeover anticipated to complete by 2030, subject to the variable demand for product lines developed in the facilities.”
