MIDLANDS TECH PARK
A SERIOUS PLAYER
The 4 million sq ft proposed on the 80 hectare Midlands Tech Park comprises the largest mixed employment site in the M6 West/M54 Corridor; a significant regional inward investment opportunity.
The scheme can accommodate a range of building types from multi-let industrial units, research and development labs, campus office buildings, and logistics centres to significant manufacturing facilities, offering all companies, large and small, a platform for growth.
The central pillar of Midlands Tech Park is as a launchpad for the emerging, sustainable industries which promise to propel the UK economy forward.
A new home for advanced manufacturing, agri-tech, modern methods of construction, battery and renewable technologies, sectors which are disrupting fading monopolies in favour of cleaner and greener ways to do things.
A springboard for 21st century
The central pillar of Midlands Tech Park is as a launchpad for the emerging, sustainable industries which promise to propel the UK economy out of the pandemic. We are excited about the potential to provide a home for advanced manufacturing, agri-tech, modern methods of construction, battery and renewable technologies. These are all sectors which are disrupting fading monopolies in favour of cleaner and greener ways to do things.
UK’s first net zero
carbon commercial destination
With roof mounted solar panels, on-site and off-site solar park and ground source heat pumps, the Midlands Tech Park will be designed around a renewable electricity infrastructure ensuring fully net zero carbon operations. Through our charging hubs, future forms of mobility such as electric cars,
e-scooters and e-bikes will enable employees and visitors to travel past our extensive green spaces, woodland copses and water features to their meetings or the station sustainably.
A variety of building types and sizes to provide flexibility for high growth industries.
Sharing of ideas from an agglomeration of significant and diverse businesses.
Sustainable connections to key centres from Cosford station (eight minutes).
Strategic position on the advanced manufacturing corridor between the West Midlands and Telford.
A business centre location with co-working, conferencing and hotel focused around Vauxhall Farm.
A new employment hub for disruptive technologies and growing local businesses.
The [Weston] Site is in a prime location relative to the motorway and rail network and is controlled by a single landowner who is engaged in the local plan review process. It thus provides Shropshire with a significant opportunity to deliver development to support economic growth and housing requirements.’

Work, play and thrive
We will eschew outdated 20th century business park layouts and make activities, amenity and interaction central to our design. Tong Castle Park will offer acres of green space for walking, running, team sports and even water for canoeing and wild swimming. Co-working, crèches, coffee shops, convenience retail, fitness facilities and restaurant space will be designed into an employment area within striking distance of a farm shop and a medical centre.
