The Works at Unity Campus
Posted on Apr 2, 2020 by Cambridge Catalyst
We explore Cambridgeshire’s top business spaces, from co-working hubs and start-up incubators to conference venues and meeting rooms
Regenerating a dilapidated former industrial site, Unity Campus is Howard Group’s impressive new 260,000-sqft business park, geared towards meeting the needs of the thriving south Cambridge tech cluster. Located just outside the village of Sawston, the campus aims to “connect people, businesses, ideas and places through intelligent master-planning, strategic building design and through the provision of common amenity and shared public realm.”
It’s off to a flying start, having so far attracted growth businesses including GetBusy, Telensa, Iontas, Biocair and Aqdot.
The space has been designed with connection and collaboration at its core, providing flexible office and meeting space, plus inspiring breakout areas and amenities
The first phase to be released is The Works, which boasts striking architecture, grade A infrastructure and 63,000 square feet of flexible, modern space. Created by worldrenowned architects NBBJ, the space has been designed with connection and collaboration at its core, providing flexible office and meeting space, plus inspiring breakout areas and other amenities. The glazed, double-height central ‘street’ runs through the building, providing a natural light-filled space to meet, share ideas and relax with likeminded people and businesses.
Another big draw is the chance to escape the increasingly clogged up Cambridge traffic – surrounding road networks offer easy access to the M11, A11 and A14, plus there’s a multistorey car park with 700 spaces.
For those looking to commute by bike, the development offers access all the way to central Cambridge using off-road cycle paths, and 670 dedicated cycle parking spaces to choose from once you get there. The campus is just a few minutes away from Whittlesford Parkway train station, too, which is well-served by regular trains running to Cambridge and London.
What’s it got?
A cutting-edge, unique and exciting office space in close proximity to the Cambridge science and technology cluster and an existing thriving business community.
