The striking contemporary design of the building is achieved by the use of solar gain resistant enhanced cladding and using materials that are both sustainable and highly recyclable with a good longevity to provide a clean and crisp business park environment that will last into the future.
Further environmental credentials of the building, which will be rated BREEAM Excellent, include automatic movement and daylight sensitive lighting, brise soleil system and electric vehicle charging points along with other benefits, such as raised access floors, suspended ceilings, mixed mode mechanical ventilation with heat recovery and an energy monitoring system.
Angus Bates, Owner and Developer of Oxford Technology Park, said: “We’re delighted we’re nearing completion of Building One, which has been specifically designed both externally and internally to cater for science and technology companies to meet the growing demand for high-tech office and lab space in Oxfordshire from spin-outs, start-ups to those companies who require grow-on space. ”
The building, which is due for completion in November, offers 34,125 sq.ft. of Grade A flexible space, available to let in suites from 4,140 sq.ft for office, laboratory and R&D use, with bespoke office and laboratory fit-out packages available to suit the needs of individual occupiers.
Oxford Technology Park is a major new science and technology park providing the next generation of Office and R&D space at the heart of Oxfordshire’s A34 Knowledge Economy spine.
Extending over 20 acres and with planning consent for 400,000 sq.ft. of built space, Oxford Technology Park is destined to form an integral part of the city’s science and technology-based expansion.
Construction of over 140,000 sq. ft. is currently underway consisting of three distinct buildings, starting with a landmark, three-storey lab-enabled Building One due for completion in November. Situated on the entrance into Oxford Technology Park, fronting Langford Lane and the Oxford London airport, this prestigious building offers 34,125 sq. ft. of flexible space, available to let in suites from 4,140 sq. ft. for office, laboratory, and R&D use.
Adjacent to Building One, will be the HQ facility for Native Antigen, quickly followed by the next phase of development with the Innovation Quarter, comprising 11 hybrid R&D units from 5,160 sq.ft.
