One of the most technologically advanced buildings in the west-country was recently opened at Plymouth Science Park by Professor Judith Petts CBE, Vice-Chancellor, University of Plymouth and Ian Bowyer, Leader of Plymouth City Council. One Research Way is the fifth phase of the park’s development and was made possible by a grant from the Heart of the South West LEP Growth Fund and additional funding from the University and Council.

The building is the flagship of the park and its first tenants are relocations. The multi-million pound iconic gateway project stands at the entrance to the park and is already 60% let with the matching learning company iotec Global and London based e-learning company The Key Support Solutions, occupying the top floors. The park expects the building to be 100% occupied by the summer.

A dramatic and exciting building, One Research Way is spread over three floors and offers 11 units and is a clear statement of the park’s dominant position as the region’s centre for science and technology businesses. As the centre in the South West for the growing Science & Technology sectors, Plymouth Science Park has planned its newest building to lead the way in innovation and design.

Director of Operations, Christian Jenkins, said: “This is a fantastic building in all respects and any aspirational business should want to be part of this dynamic and exciting community. The success of One Research Way has given us the confidence to start planning Phase 6 and it is yet another mark of confidence in the growth and sustainability of Plymouth as the region’s economic heart.”

Along with unobstructed south-facing views, the glass and steel building makes clever use of natural light and features meeting spaces extruding from the structure in striking breakout pods, designed to encourage collaborative opportunities and inspire creativity.

In declaring the building open Professor Petts said:The opening of One Research Way marks an important milestone in the positive trajectory of Plymouth Science Park, and for the city and region as it focuses on attracting and supporting high-growth, highly-skilled, technology-focused businesses. For the University, this is welcome progress, creating additional opportunities for the University to bring about economic impact through the ongoing application of its research and the influence of its undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as helping to attract its graduates to re-main within the region.”

Leader of Plymouth City Council Ian Bowyer, said: “This is fantastic news for Plymouth and shows the calibre of companies that are looking to come here. We are determined to continue to invest in opportunities like the science park to ensure we are creating high quality jobs here.

One Research Way has been designed to meet the exacting requirements of ambitious businesses. The adaptable layout of the office areas has been arranged to meet the ever-changing space requirements of growing businesses. Super-fast broadband, an on-site data centre, 24-hour security and 24/7 access make One Research Way the natural choice for those looking for a premier location in which to base their business.
