Northern Ireland delegation takes inspiration from Bristol & Bath Science Park
A delegation from Belfast’s Titanic Quarter, one of the world’s largest urban-waterfront regeneration projects, paid a visit to Bristol & Bath Science Park this week.
The visitors came to look at The Forum, the Park’s bright and airy central area for meeting, eating and networking, as they are planning to create a new communal business space at the Titanic Quarter.
Industrial land will be regenerated to make way for this new hub, which will have a focus on the creative and tech sectors.
Master-planned over 185 acres on the site where RMS Titanic was designed and built, Titanic Quarter’s futuristic mix of residential, commercial, tourism, education and retail space has provided Belfast with a new urban quarter.
With 145,000 sq ft already completed, 90 companies on site and around 5,000 people living and working in this area, this scheme will ultimately provide homes and employment for 50,000.
Bonnie Dean, chief executive of Bristol & Bath Science Park, said: “We were delighted to welcome representatives from the Titantic Quarter to the Park and very much enjoyed discussing the positive impact that well-designed communal space can have on businesses.”
