Glasshouse, Alderley Park’s new hub for technology companies and innovative businesses has officially opened. The location is tailored for digital businesses looking to work closely and partner with some of the country’s leading life science start-ups which are already located at the Park’s Mereside campus.
According to the Park, the 150,000 square foot building offers a collaborative workspace providing a place for companies working in areas such as big data, data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) which it says are playing an increasingly key role in drug discovery.
A central atrium reportedly provides a range of co-working, networking and meeting spaces designed to inspire the exchange of knowledge and sharing of ideas. A range of other space options and flexible layouts are also available in the building allowing every business located there to flourish and expand easily as they grow, says the Park.
Dr Kath Mackay, Managing Director of Alderley Park, said: “Historically renowned as being home to one of the UK’s pre-eminent life science campuses, the arrival of Glasshouse signifies Alderley Park as a leading destination for innovative tech businesses too.
“Glasshouse offers everything from co-working to small and larger offices, making it ideal for entrepreneurs and start-ups as well as fast-growing and larger businesses.
“The convergence of digital technologies with drug discovery is one of the most radical trends in life science of recent years. This unique approach to locating life science and tech businesses in close proximity will help to drive the collaboration needed to inspire the developments and discoveries of the future.”
