A new landmark three-storey lab-enabled building at Oxford Technology Park near Kidlington has been officially opened.

This building, now known as Building One at Oxford Technology Park, offers 34,125 sq ft of Grade A flexible space, available to let in suites from 4,140 sq ft for office, laboratory and R&D use, with bespoke office and laboratory fit-out packages available to suit the needs of spin-outs, start-ups and to those companies who require grow-on space.

During the unveiling visit, Councillor Nigel Simpson had a tour of Building One to explore the high-tech facilities, including automatic movement and daylight sensitive lighting and electric vehicle charging points along with raised access floors, suspended ceilings, mixed-mode mechanical ventilation with heat recovery and an energy monitoring system.

Building One, situated on the entrance into Oxford Technology Park, fronting Langford Lane and the Oxford London airport, is conveniently located at the commercial centre of innovative activity with Oxford’s high-tech/life-science hubs nearby.

Angus Bates, Developer of Oxford Technology Park, said: “We have already signed a number of pre-lets and received strong interest from regional operators across the life science sector.

“We are working with these companies to design bespoke fit-outs to meet their exact needs and looking forward to welcoming them to the park in the coming months. To secure space, we are encouraging interested businesses to get in touch now.”

Councillor Nigel Simpson said: “It is fantastic to see Oxford Technology Park start to come to fruition, with the opening of Building One, and attracting the science and technology occupiers that the Building was always intended for.”

Oxford Technology Park is a new science and technology park providing the next generation of office, Research & Development, laboratory and production space at the heart of Oxfordshire’s Knowledge Economy spine.

It is destined to form an integral part of the city’s science and technology-based expansion, with 200,000 sq ft of space becoming available over the next 12-months.
