 Bradfield Centre, Cambridge Science Park

Cambridge Cleantech is pleased to invite you to a development site visit to the Cambridge Science Park and the Urban & Civic development at Waterbeach Barracks on Wednesday 8th November 2017.

Cambridge Science Park
One of the first science parks in Europe, the Park is seeking to retain its pre-eminent position as a leading R&D centre, including for life sciences. The original first phase of buildings are low level and these will be replaced over time with higher density, state of the art, offices and laboratories. The Science Park has joined Cambridge Cleantech as a Founder member and the recently appointed Director, Jeanette Walker (formerly Bio-Medical Campus) is keen to use the expertise of our members to ensure that future developments are sustainable.
 
Waterbeach Barracks 
The latest development site for Urban & Civic at Waterbeach Barracks will create 6,500 new homes (1/3 built directly by Urban & Civic), along with schools, retail and some commercial development. Master planning is coming to fruition and Urban & Civic are keen to find sustainable solutions for the major infrastructure developments from groundworks and drainage to lighting for pedestrian and cycle routes, modular housing solutions, digital infrastructure and the adaptability of energy networks for new renewable energy projects.
