WHITCHURCH ENTERPRISE PARK, OUR INDUSTRIAL WORKSPACE LOCATED IN SOUTH BRISTOL, FOR BRISTOL CITY COUNCIL ADDRESSES THE SHORTAGE OF INCUBATION AND EXPANSION SPACE FOR LOCAL SMES. IT IS A THRIVING ENTERPRISE HUB FOR A MIX OF LOCAL INDUSTRIAL SECTORS.
The Enterprise Park works alongside an area-targeted enterprise support project, fulfilling the increasing demands for commutable workspace because of the investments in housing and other infrastructure in South Bristol. Residents can live in, rent and own homes which are completely accessible to where they work. Businesses can benefit from increased growth and the creation of new employment opportunities.
The development is also linked to the expansion of the Bottle Yard Studios across two sites, anticipating the demand for units from suppliers linked to the studios.
The 2,600sqm workspace will be split across three blocks, with the potential for up to fourteen units with individual access. The workspace is fully secured by perimeter fencing, accessible from an internal road, ensuring privacy for all tenants.
The business units are designed to be inherently adaptable. With a large clear structure, bathed in natural light, they are developed to a shell only specification, flexible to the requirements of individual tenants and their commercial needs.
The design focuses on subtle solutions and environmental efficiency, utilising the right infrastructure to reduce energy demand and carbon emissions. The material for the entirety of the site is a vertical seam cladding solution across the walls and roofs. This creates a relationship across all developments in the area, integrating fully into the community.
The project is benchmarked against the RIBA 2030 Climate Change targets. It encourages travel using cycling, walking and public transport, which is reflected in the number of car parking spaces and facilities provided. Electrical charging points are also available.
