Nottingham’s newest enterprise park has proved so popular that it is at capacity on its first anniversary of opening.
The University of Nottingham Innovation Park (UNIP) took on new tenants throughout 2009 — in defiance of difficult economic conditions — and is now at an impressive 100 per cent occupancy.
Situated on a 12-acre site next to the University’s award-winning Jubilee Campus, UNIP is an ideal incubation space for big ideas, providing excellent business accommodation to encourage innovation.

With January 2010 marking its first anniversary, UNIP now has 22 tenants including the Institution of Civil Engineers, Ordnance Survey, Europe Solutions Ltd, Dialogik (UK) Ltd and the film company Skeleton Productions.
Existing tenants are based in the Sir Colin Campbell Building, which forms a bridge over Triumph Road. But plans for further expansion of the Innovation Park will significantly increase the capacity of the Park as the next stages take shape.
UNIP provides high quality space for small and medium-sized bodies in the inspiring surroundings of the new Jubilee Campus — named the UK’s ‘Estates Initiative of the Year’ for 2009 by the Times Higher Education. The park also provides development space for companies wishing to build on the site.
Jo Derbyshire, Operations Manager at UNIP, said: “It’s a fantastic result to reach full capacity within a year of opening the Innovation Park, particularly in the light of continued difficulties with the economic situation.
“We have a broad range of tenants active in a wide variety of areas, which is an illustration of the flexibility we have on site to cater for all kinds of enterprise. We’re looking forward to building on the success of our first year and developing The University of Nottingham Innovation Park further in the years to come.”
