Amiri win £4 million project with Lumenisity® Limited in Romsey

Amiri Construction are starting on a £4 million new build of a facility to house multiple optical fibre draw towers, associated support laboratories and internal refurbishments.

The project located at Lumenisity’s headquarters in Romsey, sees the refurbishment of part of the existing industrial building with land adjacent to the property for the new build. A link corridor connects the current building to the new tower rooms. 

The project is due to be completed in the Summer of 2021. Liaison between Lumenisity and Amiri site management is critical at all times to ensure all work is being carried out whilst keeping the existing building a live and working environment, with minimal disruption.

Lumenisity was formed in 2017 as a spin out from the University of Southampton’s ORC, to commercialise their ground-breaking hollowcore fibre optic and cabling technology to produce CoreSmart™ solutions, recently introduced to market. Their goal is to be the world’s premier high-performance hollowcore cable solutions provider. This build will enable on-site manufacture and test of both Lumenisity’s NANF™ based fibre and CoreSmart™ cable solutions.

Martin Tidby, Managing Director says “We are very pleased to be working alongside Lumenisity on their latest project. Having undertaken a similar project before, we look forward to using that knowledge and delivering an exceptional Amiri project experience”.

Colden Common based Architect, Stride Treglown , Hedge End based Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors, Gleeds are involved with the project and WFBA, who are providing the Structural Engineering design and Ion Consulting Engineers who are providing the Mechanical and Electrical design are both based just a few miles up the road in Braishfield.
