Violet Phase Two

Phase 2 of Violet is set to comprise the speculative development of two buildings V4 and V5

Ideally suited for well-established and growing science and technology companies

Phase 2 of Violet is set to comprise the speculative development of two buildings V4, a c. 23,000 sq ft Grade A office building and V5 a c. 60,000 sq ft Grade A lab building both of which have been designed to BREEAM Excellent standards, have exemplary specifications, and is capable of achieving up to a 25% bio-diversity net gain with the inclusion of green roofs and a comprehensive planting scheme.

V4 is ideally suited for growing science and technology companies in areas such as engineering, healthcare technologies, digital technologies, and sustainability. It enables them to have strong visibility and identity on a national science and innovation campus.

V5 is ideally suited for well-established, growing companies requiring scalable lab infrastructure. Suitable for companies involved in life sciences, materials development, analytical testing, and instrumentation. The ground floor laboratories will meet the requirements of companies needing to accommodate large pieces of equipment or instrumentation.
