A new Innovation Centre is to be built at Westcott Venture Park.
The Westcott Innovation Centre will be located at the heart of the Park’s newly formed Space Cluster and will complement the new 5G Step-Out Centre and the Westcott Business Incubation Centre, which is managed by the Satellite Applications Catapult.
These centres provide business space and support for companies working in 5G, rocket propulsion and autonomous vehicles. The Westcott Innovation Centre is being funded by the Satellite Applications Catapult and the Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership (Bucks LEP).
The Satellite Applications Catapult has signed an agreement to lease with owners PATRIZIA Hanover Property Unit Trust which is subject to planning permission. If planning consent is granted a new 12,000sq ft office and engineering training facility will be developed and let to The Satellite Applications Catapult on a 15 year lease.
The development of the Innovation Centre will further expand Westcott’s unique portfolio of buildings, offering flexible space comprising offices, laboratories and high-tech facilities.
