In June 2017, SDC celebrated its 45th anniversary by opening a new regional office on the outskirts of Oxford. Known as ‘The Oxford Hub’, the office marked a new chapter in the Company’s history of delivering projects across the South-East and Midlands by providing a platform for closer integration with the local market. Previously work was being undertaken from SDC’s head office in Bedford, but the point had been reached where a local base was needed to enhance the service offered to clients and create an environment that encouraged long-term, sustainable growth.
The construction arm of ‘The Hub’ has been divided into two distinct areas of specialism to reflect the local market conditions; one predominantly focuses on higher education projects, while the other concentrates on Research and Commercial-type buildings. Both branches are supported by an in-house M&E department, responsible for managing the services installations from initial planning through to the commissioning and soft-landing phases. Other departments operating from ‘The Hub’ include estimating, surveying, planning, design, and health and safety.
Since ‘The Hub’ opened, SDC has completed a wide-variety of projects for clients including Oxford University, Abingdon School and Harwell Science and Innovation Campus.
