Howard Group Commences Development of Unity Campus


Situated in the heart of Unity Campus, Cambridge, The Works provide contemporary office spaces unlike any other.

Designed with connection and collaboration at its core, The Works provide business and offices spaces that stand to be both inspiring and flexible. Offering high quality internal circulation, breakout and amenity space.

The Works illustrate up to 63,000 sq ft of contemporary business space with suites available from 7,500 sq ft. Beginning in October 2018, with occupation set to begin in November 2018, amenity spaces and creative break out spaces deliver an exemplary new business arena to South Cambridgeshire.

The £20 million innovative multi-led business space project is now well under way. Representing the first phase of significant investment by Cambridge based Howard Group to bring forth the new campus style Business Park.

The extensive new space is taking place within the footprint of the formal industrial building which currently occupies the site, incorporating the pre-cast concrete frame of the original building which is to be transformed by world-renowned architects NBBJ. The team will see a contemporary office space of high quality with R&D space come forth that teams industrial aesthetics with world class design.

Connected by a 100 meter long converted central street, the two storey office build will promote everything the contemporary work space could ever wish to need. Already the Howard Group has completed the first 7,500 sq ft pre-let, with additional suits in The Works being available soon, from 5,000 sq ft upwards, configured to suit the needs of every client.

Howard Group’s Development Director, William Jewson, commented: “The goal at The Works is to create an environment where dynamic, growing businesses can thrive. South Cambridge has a huge number of occupiers looking for something a little different to the institutional office stock available, that will help them to both recruit and retain talent, and inspire and engage their workforce. With excellent train services, cycle routes in central Cambridge and easy access to the main road network, this is the perfect campus-style office location.

“The Works is the first stage of our master plan for Unity Campus. The ultimate aim is to create a new kind of Business Park, with striking architecture, grade A infrastructure, a pedestrian and cycle friendly circulation space and excellent amenities both internally and externally. We would love to talk to any businesses interested in making the move into something a little more exciting than the more conventional Business Park.”

The project stands as an innovation that will provide exceptionally contemporary space, in which like-minded people and businesses can meet, work, relax and share ideas.
