So far so good as newly-opened science park enjoys huge demand
The recently opened Science Park in Emerson’s Green has already proved to be a big hit with companies. The £300 million development in South Gloucestershire will eventually create hundreds of jobs and bring millions of pounds of investment into the city. The first part of the scheme has already been filled thanks to high demand from firms in the area.
The ground floor of the Innovation Centre at the Science Park has filled up twice as quickly as originally expected by the developer Quantum Property Partnership.
As a result an area initially set aside for hot-desking has had to be converted temporarily into offices for a new tenant, while the first floor is being fitted out. The floor, ready in the autumn, will offer a further 23 offices with 141 desks for science and hi-tech businesses.
Demand is also high for space in the 25,000 sqft Grow On Centre, which includes flexible office and research space to suit the larger science and research-led businesses as they expand and mature as businesses, according to a report in this is Gloucestershire. >>More here
