Our facilities

Our facilities - Knowledge factory

We support UK’s innovation sector by providing a wide range of facilities across our portfolio of parks. Our facilities are designed to support all facets of UK innovation and we are able to cater for everything from early stage space, right the way through the spectrum to pharma grade manufacturing.

Not only do our parks have the right infrastructure to facilitate your business but, importantly, they are managed by people who know what they’re doing and are there to support you. . Strong words, but we mean what we say, and we challenge you to speak to businesses already located in our parks and see if they agree.
