28 Sep Plans for the HP Site in Bracknell
As many of you know, we have our headquarters in the thriving town of Bracknell in Berkshire. A lot has changed in the last few years for a town many people labelled as a concrete jungle. We now have a brand new town centre which is still being expanded as we speak. The Lexicon draws people from miles around to its restaurants and excellent shopping facilities.
Surrounding the town centre, we also have a number of global businesses who have chosen Bracknell as their home. Companies such as Honda, Vodafone and John Lewis to name a few; even Hewlett Packard were based here for a while, until recently.
If you have just moved to Bracknell or perhaps you have been here a while and are thinking of making changes to your existing workspace or wondering where to start, make sure you get in contact with a member of our expert team on 01344 303504 or email us.
This huge site to the West of Bracknell town centre, near Amen Corner was home to Hewlett Packard Enterprise for a number of years. According to Bracknell News, it will be split up into smaller units to accommodate and attract other businesses of varying sizes to the area.
Three groups, Hines UK, Chancerygate and Credit Suisse are behind a joint venture to build a 350,000 sq ft business park for local, regional and national businesses to move in to. The site is well connected to motorways and within walking distance to the mainline train station, which could see it attract some people and employers to the area.
The units will cover an array of usages, from offices to warehousing, and will present the ideal configuration for businesses such as film production companies and data centres with the developers already having had enquiries regarding the potential for bespoke facilities.
The COVID-19 pandemic has also seen many online retail businesses making changes to their supply chain, this has meant that the demand for expanding their warehousing space has increased while the supply has reduced. This new site could accommodate a number of retailers, bringing activity and jobs to the area.
At the time of writing, the planning application has been validated by Bracknell Forest Council, however, they are yet to make a final decision.
