1. Great Location
Transport connections to Southampton Science Park are excellent: We're just 1 mile from the M3 junction 14, and close to the M27 on the northern edge of Southampton, making it a very convenient location to access the whole of southern England. In addition to excellent motorway access, the development is close to Southampton Parkway Station and Southampton International Airport with direct flights to over 50 destinations throughout the UK and Europe.
2. Close Links with the University of Southampton
The Science Park is owned by the University of Southampton and the two organisations enjoy close links, giving tenant companies access to some of the UK's leading scientific expertise.
3. Comprehensive Business Support
Basing your company at Southampton Science Park gives you access to some of the best business support in the UK. With services for all companies from start-ups to multi-nationals, the Science Park is designed with your success in mind.
4. Hi-tech Infrastructure
With a dual routed power supply, our own Internet Protocol phone system, real broadband and a data centre on site, technological requirements are well looked after at the Science Park.
A wide range of facilities is available including a business incubator and enterprise hub with support services for SMEs, real broadband, generous parking, and Chilworth Manor, a former Victorian mansion which is now a luxury hotel and conference centre with a leisure club (from August 2007) open to employees of companies on the Park.
6. Property to suit all sizes of company
We offer everything from custom-designed headquarters to office/lab space in multi-occupancy buildings. A new 9-acre site at Benham Campus has a great variety of building plots to suit virtually any incoming business. Because the site already has planning permission for 102,000 ft2 of new offices, companies can build their ideal premises with minimal delay. Recently completed Kenneth Dibben House has a range of suites from 540 sq.ft. to 5,000 sq.ft., which are designed to encourage young, hi-tech companies. For smaller companies we even offer a virtual tenancy service.
7. Support for start-up businesses
Southampton Science Park has developed an environment specifically designed to accommodate the needs of start-up businesses. The Innovation Centre offers small companies the opportunity to benefit from flexible leasing arrangements (including "easy-in/easy-out" facilities) and access to shared facilities (for example meeting rooms and photocopiers). The Science Park gives priority to existing tenants wishing to expand their accommodation footprint. We will work with you to find appropriate space on the Park and allow you to surrender your existing lease without a penalty.
8. Impressive Surroundings
Set in 45 acres of landscaped grounds, the Science Park makes an impressive base. It is part of the Chilworth estate, a quiet area of parkland to the north-west of Southampton characterised by mature trees and green space. Also adjacent is the Chilworth Conservation Area, a 40 acre open-access area incorporating ancient woodland, an ecology meadow, an arboretum and lake.
