Science Park

Brunel Science Park offers companies the opportunity to work alongside one of the UK’s best technology universities, currently leading the way in a number of government initiatives to promote enterprise and innovation within British companies. We can help with business plans and raising finance, as well as providing specific technical support.

Brunel Science Park is a business start-up centre to attract people who would enjoy working in a supportive environment based at Uxbridge on the campus of Brunel University London.

We have flexible rent agreements and can provide access to the resources of the University. We particularly welcome tenants who may be able to interact with the University. The on-campus location means that all facilities are within easy walking distance, these include the restaurants, sports centre, library, bank and shops.

Our operation was established in 1986 and we have been active since then in attracting a range of tenants including new start-ups, and small, specialist companies as well as new spin outs from established, international companies. A number of our early start ups have since grown into large, successful operations.

We have flexible tenancy agreements designed to foster growth and a full range of business support services, including guidance on company formation, access to research and development funding, patent and trade marks, recruitment and training, market assessment and venture finance. Speak to us about your aims and objectives.

History

The Science Park at Uxbridge consists of three buildings, which have been erected on the edge of the campus of Brunel University.

Phase I

The first building was actually constructed by the tenant, The International Tin Research Institute, who paid the University a sum for a 99 year Lease of the land after which time the building and the land revert to the University. Construction of the International Tin Research Institute (now known as ITRI Limited) commenced April 1984 completed August 1985.

The money received for the Lease of the land as above was used to construct a building (known as Building No.1) for multiple occupancy, was capable of being partitioned into offices and laboratories. As tenants moved in the areas were adapted to their requirements. Construction commenced in November 1984 which was completed August 1985. These two buildings were Phase I of the Science Park.



Phase II

Phase II is the third building (known as Building No.2) which was financed by a mortgage and was built to the specification of the original tenant’s office requirement with one area to be let separately for five years after which time the main tenant had an option to take this area into their Lease. The recession led to the opposite whereby the main tenant gradually released their existing areas. This building now has three tenants, one of these being a tenant who outgrew their space in Building No 1.

HRH Prince Charles officially opened Brunel Science Park in 1986.

The Science Park over the years has evolved not only in what are known as the three science park buildings on a corner of the University campus fronting Kingston Lane, but wherever opportunities have arisen, as it has looked after and encouraged companies in other parts of the campuses, both at Uxbridge and Runnymed (known as the Science Centre) and therefore the Science Park is looked at conceptually rather than as a number of buildings. The companies at Runnymede have all been new companies and many of them have renovated their premises (formerly derelict).
