Cambridge science park major expansion approved

Cambridge council planners has given the go-ahead for for two new buildings, a transport hub and gym at St John’s Innovation Park.

St John’s College and development manager Turnstone Estates are planning a two-phased development of two 85,000 sq ft office and R&D buildings and a new transport hub.

The transport hub will provide a gym available for all Park occupiers to use, extensive cycle storage, showers and a cycle repair facility.

Designed with ‘intelligent building’ and ‘smart office’ best practice principles in mind, the development is targeting a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating. It has already achieved a WiredScore Platinum Certification.

It is anticipated that the first phase of development – the construction of the Dirac Building and transport hub – will be delivered ready for occupation in 2023.

Chris Goldsmith, Managing Director, Turnstone said: “These new architecturally striking workspaces will resonate with the next generation of innovators in technology and R&D and attract those looking for accessible, well-connected, best-in-class buildings in the northern Cambridge Cluster”.
