400,000 sq ft Oxford Science Park expansion approved

Designed by Scott Brownrigg, each building will provide headquarters – office and laboratory facilities – for leading science and technology companies.

The Oxford Science Park is majority owned by Magdalen College, Oxford, and is at the heart of its strategy to support discovery, innovation and entrepreneurship.

The four-storey buildings will feature active frontages with cafés and co-working spaces at ground level and below podium parking.

Expansion plans were advanced because of the strong performance of the office and lab markets over the last six months.

The Oxford Science Park’s 86,000 sq ft Iversen Building, due for completion in summer 2023, is the next laboratory building to complete in Oxford versus demand for nearly 2m sq ft in Oxford and Cambridge, according to Bidwells’ latest research.

John Sisk along with M&E specialist Briggs & Forrester are delivering this Plot 16 job, understood to be worth £45m

Plots 23-26 on The Oxford Science Park are part of long-term, ambitious development plans to help meet this demand through the creation of exemplary additional office and laboratory space over the next three years.
