Business park for high-tech engineering companies (Global business destination)
MEPC has been a prominent name in UK commercial property for more than 60 years, with an outstanding track record of responsible property management and development of large business estates. MEPC acquired a 999-year leasehold to develop land around the famous Silverstone Circuit in 2013 when it launched its plans for Silverstone Park.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Working with its partners in and around the Silverstone Technology Cluster, MEPC’s ambition is to turn Silverstone Park into a global destination for engineering, innovation and business development. Since taking over management of Silverstone Park, MEPC has attracted over 20 new companies to the estate – each drawn to the location by the profile raising address and the cluster of specialist skills and capabilities in the surrounding area. This special economic geography (the Silverstone Technology Cluster) has now been recognised by the SQW cluster report and attracted immediate support from Government. In order to create a destination MEPC is not only developing property options – ranging from 200 sq ft to HQ style stand-alone buildings set in a high quality campus style environment – but is also developing a strong community of like-minded people and opportunities for business development. When complete it is estimated that 200 companies will be based at Silverstone Park creating over 6,000 jobs. This exciting project will effectively double the size of Silverstone as a venue.
