Project TypeScience

CompletionFebruary 2017



The first phase of Ryder’s commission to deliver four buildings totalling 18,500sqm.

The Gateway includes a mix of laboratories and offices with ancillary accommodation and is the landmark entrance to the park, masterplanned by Ryder, which is aimed at attracting innovation and technology led companies of all sizes who are developing and delivering cutting edge new products.

The Gateway and subsequent phases are designed to anticipate change, be flexible and adaptable to suite generations of occupiers.  It is the catalyst for the successful delivery of the wider TVSP, setting the standard and delivering an early identity and brand aspiration for the park.

“Ryder’s ability to respond to exciting developments such as this speaks for itself.  Their team is highly talented, innovative, and flexible and listens closely to clients’ needs while offering creative challenge to ideas and concepts.”
