Scott Brownrigg’s design for over 600,000 sq ft of speculative office and laboratory buildings for Biomed Realty has received planning approval.
The.15 acres site at Fulbourn Road Cambridge will provide 600,000-net-sq-ft of laboratory and office space, aimed at life sciences, biotechnology and more traditional office occupiers. To be known as Cambridge International Technology Park, the buildings will be capable of being occupied by a variety of users for multi or single occupation.
With a highly sustainable and environment focused approach, the Park will provide flexible space suitable for a range of end user needs, particularly important given the diverse range of target occupiers in the Cambridge market.
The Campus is centered around a new approach to outdoor collaborative workspace; a series of landscaped terraces, platforms and gardens are designed to be fully accessible to all. Anticipating the benefits of 5g and mobile technology this new outdoor workspace incudes protective covered areas to encourage people to work wherever they like, bringing the indoors out. Combined with highly sustainable, energy efficient buildings with a flexible office and laboratory use, the Cambridge International Technology Park will be an exemplar Science Hub in Southern Cambridge. Reinforcing the region’s status as a world leading center for research and development.
The project represents a major investment by Biomed Realty in the Cambridge office market where demand, especially for life sciences, biotechnology and other more traditional office users remains high.
