Ahead of the launch of the #BeMoreGiraffe Campaign 2024 on Thursday, Cambridge Innovation Park was proud to host the Giraffe’s as they made there way to central Cambridge.

More details will follow tomorrow on the campaign which is being supported by our very own Pentaco Construction.


Dear All,
Hope this message finds you well.


I am writing to provide you with an update on our renovation project that is currently underway at Cambridge Innovation Parks. We are pleased to inform you that the building work in Stirling House is progressing smoothly and is on schedule to be completed by the end of March.


Most of the noisy and disruptive work has already been completed. Over the next two weeks, we will be focusing on replacing the flooring in our atrium and new breakout areas. While we strive to minimise disruption during this process, we understand that our ongoing work may cause some temporary inconvenience in terms of access to these areas and noise during the day. Please be assured that we will do our best to schedule any noisy work outside of business hours whenever feasible. We apologise in advance for any disruption.


We are excited to unveil our improved facilities, including new food and beverage options, hot desking areas, and redesigned meeting rooms. We hope the renovations will greatly enhance your experience at Cambridge Innovation Parks.


Your understanding and patience throughout the renovation process have been invaluable. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your cooperation and support.


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Client Services Team. We are here to assist you in any way we can.

Kind regards,
Harpreet Hansi
Client Services Officer

Planning Approved!

We are pleased to announce that we have now received the final masterplan sign-off for the long-term development here at Cambridge Innovation Parks!

As some may know, we have been working tirelessly over the last few years to pull together our ESG-centric future plans for the park, and despite many delays, including a pandemic, we have finally received official sign-off for our plans.

We have worked relentlessly towards developing a more sustainable future for the park, which is reflected in these plans. Our approved planning consent includes permission for a whole new landscaping strategy and the creation of a permeable boundary with the Waterbeach Newtown development. As is clear to see, this is moving apace to the rear of our site and will give access to a wide array of amenities.In summary, we have gained consent for three new buildings in the park, creatively named buildings 3, 4 and 5, adding an additional 90,000 sq.ft of sustainably driven buildings. Complimenting the wider plans, we also have approval for a multistorey carpark to the rear of the site.

Given the scale of investment required, it is anticipated that these changes will likely begin to emerge in the next 3-5 years and will align with the broader infrastructure investments being made across Cambridgeshire.

With these plans, aligned with our long-term ambition for a more sustainable future, we have also been reviewing our existing assets such as Stirling House.

We understand that to provide you with modern, flexible space and services, whilst reducing our carbon footprint, we also needed to develop a strategy for our existing buildings. As a first step, we have recently submitted a planning application for a fully sustainable retrofit of Stirling House.

These plans, whilst light touch, form part of the Park’s 5 – 10 year growth plans. The plans have been developed in conjunction with our architects, Saunders, and Planners from Nexus with advice and guidance from South Cambridgeshire District Council. The proposal seeks only to make minor enabling external alterations to the building.  But these are fundamental to facilitating changes within the building.  Whilst the internal works would not require planning consent, nevertheless we have included them to showcase a possible modular solution that is both responsive to post-covid ways of working and reduces our operational carbon emission.

Our short-term ambitions are much closer to home and are designed to bring changes to the communal spaces of the building, enhancing vibrancy and facilitating a more relaxed communal feel. More major works would likely be part of the 5 – 10 year plan and form part of a consultation process with you, our existing clients.

These changes will likely come into effect after buildings 3, 4 and 5 have been delivered and we anticipate our commitment to “Lease Passports” being widened out further.

Our Innovation Epicentre has just doubled in size…and that means far more flexible solutions for both new and existing clients.

The goal of the Innovation Epicentre is to provide the initial touch point for organisations looking to join our Cambridge-wide Ecosystem.  It’s not just a space to work but instead it’s the place to come, collaborate and find access to a range of likeminded individuals, easily accessible advisors and common business support facilities.

We recognise that post-Covid, the working world has changed.  Anyone can find a quiet space to write a report or similar…what they can’t find is the right environment to collaborate will clients, colleagues and advisors.  We’re responding to this by creating a whole range of spaces that do just that.  Whether it’s “Hot” or “Virtual Desks”; a range of different size meeting rooms; Conference and Training Facilities, we have them.  Over the next year, we will be taking some our largest areas and creating experience spaces.  We’ve just submitted a planning application that showcases what a sustainably modernised space could look like but ahead of that, we’ve commenced an exercise to re-fresh our Atrium, bring in modern Cafe Chic spaces for networking and add some 8 or so new meeting spaces.

I’m really pleased to announce that we have just received full planning approval for our sustainable retrofit project on our flagship building here at Cambridge Innovation Parks Ltd.

The project utilizes largely passive strategies to reengineer a 1990’s ex-MOD building to achieve a projected 45% decrease in operational energy requirements and subsequent embodied carbon emissions. We have specified some amazing products such as Hemp (Natural Building Systems) walls to help maximize thermal efficiencies and modular design. The design looks to create a more flexible working environment and will optimize collaborative space within the fabulous atrium. Adding an additional 10,000 sq.ft of floor area, the project will become the beating heart of a rapidly expanding park.

With planning already achieved on this site for a further 3 buildings, adding over 100,000 sq.ft of high-grade, sustainably driven commercial space, this project set out to showcase how our existing buildings can be brought in line with our sustainable development goals whilst having a relatively light touch.

Thank you to some of the amazing team that helped us achieve this;
SAUNDERS Architecture + Urban Design
Nexus Planning
Hilson Moran

Can’t wait to get started on bringing this project to life!
