Wrenbridge are set to rock the Cambridge office market
Wrenbridge are one of the leading property companies in the UK, and, in recent years, have dominated the industrial market with the development of high-quality, sustainable logistics schemes in London, East Anglia, Home Counties and the South-East.
Alongside Wrenbridge’s heavy focus on logistics, they continue to deliver high end office space and are currently bringing Cambridge an exciting new business hub, named Brooklands.
This modern development, which has been designed by leading London architects Allies & Morrison, will create 67,000 sq ft of Grade A office space, split across two buildings. The campus will offer occupiers the use of a private garden courtyard, which will be blooming with greenery.
Cambridge is known for being a city of culture and is currently home to many leading innovative businesses and start-ups that have settled around the University, bringing with it an international community of highly skilled graduates.
Not only does Cambridge have a rich history, but it is also known to be one of the UK’s greenest cities. Brooklands has been designed with this in mind, with aims to achieving a BREEAM Excellent rating, and the City’s first electric only offices. The campus has the infrastructure to run as a net-zero carbon and fossil fuel-free operation, with roof mounted solar panels and air source heat pumps. There is also a huge focus on occupier health and wellbeing, with high levels of air ventilation throughout the buildings, with a mixed mode strategy to allow windows to be opened. Occupiers will also enjoy the use of secure cycle spaces to encourage green modes of transport.
At odds with the perceived impact of Covid, it’s become apparent that there is still plenty of demand for high-quality, sustainable spaces where people can come together and collaborate – the Cambridge market is no exception. In these times, it’s not enough for offices to simply be. Office spaces have needed to be reimagined. It is imperative that these spaces offer their occupiers the flexibility to create an environment that nurtures innovation. Brooklands certainly ticks these boxes.
Wrenbridge are thrilled to be bringing this scheme forward with M&G in their hometown of Cambridge and look forward to welcoming new businesses to the area in Q4 2023.
