Two buildings will house life sciences and tech businesses
Scott Brownrigg’s latest development on the world-renowned Cambridge Science Park has completed.
The 210,000sq ft project for the park’s founders Tus Park and Trinity College is the final stage of a five-building scheme providing commercial space for tech and life science firms.
The objective of the wider 380,000 sq ft scheme, which was developed by Bidwells, was to replace some of the park’s 1970s buildings to overhaul its entrance.
Scott Brownrigg’s development consists of two buildings fronted by a sweeping “rhythmical” colonnade guiding visitors towards the entrance.
Known as Building 1 & 2, it is the largest development in the park. Scott Brownrigg director Ed Hayden said the “passionate and talented” team had enabled the practice to create a scheme of “truly exceptional quality”.
Bidwells building consultancy partner James Abraham said the scheme, which was completed during covid restrictions without delay or cost increases, was “an achievement to be proud of, in a year to forget”.
The completion follows three other Scott Brownrigg designs in the park, including a bio-innovation centre completed in 2019.
The practice said the group of buildings “maintain a rhythm of verticality” that hold a “common language of elegant simplicity”.
