University of Reading Science and Innovation Park
University of Reading
The Science and Innovation Park will provide a new creative business environment, where innovation-led, knowledge-based companies can locate and grow from their origins at the University of Reading. As well as providing the physical facilities, the park is designed to encourage close interaction between businesses, the university and other similar centres of research and knowledge across the UK. The grouping of the buildings promotes well defined and legible space including high quality landscape proposals. A central building will offer support facilities to organisations, such as cafes, crèches and shared meeting spaces that will engender a sense of community, and encourage creative interaction. 18,500 sq m (200,000 sq ft) is being delivered in phase one, the remainder is due to finish by 2035.
