Cambridge Innovation Parks Ltd is owned and managed by Paragon Land & Estates, a local organisation with three business park sites around Cambridge. Cambridge Innovation Park North is our campus on what was old MOD land on the northern side of Cambridge at Waterbeach. Here we currently have two buildings: Stirling House, with its fine central atrium and corner ‘turrets’ opened in 2012, plus the newer purpose-built Blenheim House which opened its doors in 2018. The two buildings are currently home to around 75 established businesses and an incubation hub for start-ups.
We endeavour to create a work environment which is conducive to a healthy working lifestyle and provides maximum opportunity for collaboration and networking for SMEs, spin-outs and start-ups, mainly in the technology sector, where innovative young companies can rub shoulders and interact with larger successful businesses. These young entrepreneurs will be actively nurtured and supported to achieve success. All within a fully sustainable carbon neutral built environment.
We offer a range of office spaces, from hot-desks and co-working areas up to large company headquarters. These are modern, light and airy, all with ultra-fast fibre connectivity and many with raised floors, maximum natural light and LED lighting – all powered by renewable energy sources. Our rents always include service charge, so tenants are not saddled with extra bills. Meeting rooms are available for hire and there are large communal break-out areas available indoors and out. All these offices are set within 10 acres of landscaped grounds.
There is a superb range of leisure facilities on site. These include a gym, café-bistro, beauty salon and exercise classes – all designed to give further opportunities for staff from different companies to meet, chat, work or relax together. There is also a concierge service, CCTV, covered bike racks, showers, electric car-charging points and free parking.
Our interest in the built environment and commitment to sustainability for all our buildings lies at the heart of our decision making. This ethos is of paramount importance in the operation of our existing Innovation Park in Waterbeach, and will be key to the design and build of our forthcoming full sustainable zero carbon new builds at Cambridge West and Cambridge South. We have our own in-house sustainability team concentrating on finding the best clean technologies and hope that our new business parks will become significant test beds for new and emerging technologies. This in turn will encourage start-ups in the renewables, sustainability and smart technology sectors on our campuses.
Cambridge Innovation Park North is situated just off the A10 in Waterbeach, with easy access to the A14 and M11. We supply covered bike racks for those cycling to work and there is a pleasant cycle path from central Cambridge to Waterbeach. Buses to Cambridge stop at the entrance to our site, which is only a mile from Waterbeach train station, with mainline services to Cambridge North, Cambridge City, Stansted and London.
