1 Discovery Drive (aka 1000 Discovery Drive) was designed to create an environment which supports discovery and innovation. The building can accommodate wet and dry laboratories and office space across all five floors. Subdivision is possible into a range of sizes between approx. 5,000 sq ft and 20,000 sq ft, with up to four occupiers per floor. The ground floor entrance is framed by a structural tree and provides the local community with a café and bookable meeting room.

The design team worked closely with leading landscape architects to create shared spaces around the building and structural engineers to deliver physical flexibility and divisibility in-use throughout the building as the market may dictate.

The team will lead a tour of the building followed by speeches (from Andy Warrack from Hoare Lea (M&E), Felicity Hayward from Scott Brownrigg (architects), Andrew Blevins from Prologis and John Sommerville from Creative Places) at 9:15. We invite everyone to join us for coffee, pastries, and bacon sandwiches after the tour.

*Please note that there is no parking at 1000 Discovery Drive, so we recommend you make use of the Park and Ride or different parking options on the campus. For more information, please see here.
