Competition Winning Science Park
Part of the Phase 1 implementation of the competition winning Innova Science Park development, Innova House is designed to deliver flexible accommodation for businesses in the R&D sector.
Grouped around a central core containing toilets, stairs, lift, service risers and a ground floor reception area, the 3310sqm research/office building is designed to provide accommodation for up to four tenants. The steel framed 2-storey building is clad in a highly insulated self-finished flat panel system with ribbon windows and brise-soleil solar shading contained under low angle mono-pitched roofs that spring from the flat-roofed central core.
Also part of Phase 1, the Business Innovation Centre is designed to deliver flexible accommodation that provides start-up facilities for up to 18 tenants, dependent upon individual space requirements.
Tenant spaces are grouped around three communal entrance and service cores providing toilets, stairs, platform lifts and service risers. The steel framed 2-storey building is clad in a highly insulated self-finished flat panel system with ribbon windows and brise-soleil solar shading contained under a low angle mono-pitched roof. Service van access is provided to all ground floor units.
Phases 2 and 3 built on this established principle with additional flexible accommodation within environmentally and space efficient buildings. Phase 2, The Pavilions, provides start-up facilities for up to 20 tenants within 10 units that can be divided per floor. Phase 3, Vision 25, provided additional research/office accommodation within a single building, designed to offer up to 3 tenants per floor over its 3 storeys.
Both Phases 2 and 3 utilised modern methods of construction, with steel frames, a combination of beam & block or precast planks for floor, SFS dry-build external walls with a combination of brick and insulated metal panel cladding, low-angled roofs, modular M&E services/equipment and large areas of glazing for natural light, providing flexible spaces internally for future demise alterations to suit different tenant needs.
