Science and Business Parks – Clusters of businesses with a scientific and technological focus
Business parks are purpose built areas of offices and warehouses, often at the edge of a city and on a main road. Science parks are often located near university sites and where high-tech industries are established. Scientific research and commercial development may be carried out in co-operation with the university.
Science and business took over the park (science and business park). The park was on the edge of town, just off the main road. Some great ideas grew up between the trees and flower beds, and they shared research results with the nearby university.
Science and business parks are often found on the edge of cities and big towns. They are special places for company offices, with good accessibility (transport links).
They may be sited close to universities in order to attract graduates.
The offices of science and business parks are usually low-rise and have plenty of parking and green spaces. The parks are designed to be pleasant environments for employees and visitors.
The increase in the number of science and business parks is helping a range of businesses – including IT, service, finance, and scientific/research companies – to work together.
