Building B, Unity Campus, Cambridge

Sawston, Cambridge, CB22 3FT. Unity Campus, is already home to 12 leading life science and technology companies and is undergoing further expansion, A1 along with two other new laboratory buildings are due for completion by the end of 2023. Approx 3,652 sq ft – 31,000 sq ft


Unity Campus is an exciting new urban innovation district in the heart of the Cambridgeshire countryside.Campus owners Howard Group, a Cambridge-based family business with a 50-year track record as a long-term property investor and developer, is transforming the site of a former tannery into a stunning modern workplace.

Located 8 miles south of Cambridge, the 11-acre Campus which is already home to 12 leading life science and technology companies, is undergoing a major expansion. Three new laboratory buildings are due for completion by the end of 2023 and a further three buildings by the end of 2025 providing an additional 150,000 sq ft of floorspace. Other out-dated industrial units have been sustainably repurposed into state-of-the-art offices and laboratories adjacent to a well-equipped fitness centre.

The masterplan for the compact site has been purposefully designed to foster business interactions and friendships. Building on the industrial legacy of the nearby villages of Sawston and Pampisford, the bold urban aesthetic of the buildings is being off-set by a network of connected green spaces and water meadows as well as a landscaped courtyard with a multi-purpose clubhouse.

Community, societal impact and sustainability underpin every aspect of the operation and development of the Campus.

By merging the traditional and modern, urban and rural, business and social, Unity Campus offers an entirely different working environment to all other science and research parks in the Cambridge area creating a wider choice of location for technology and life science companies seeking laboratories or offices.

Unity Campus is one of the best-connected technology & innovation parks in the region, with access to excellent air, rail, road and cycling infrastructure. It sits in a prime location close to public transport links (Whittlesford Parkway station is under a mile away), community activities and amenities in nearby Sawston, cycle networks into central Cambridge and some of the region’s most affordable housing and Stansted Airport is located less than half an hour away by road. This combination of accessibility from a travel and amenity perspective is something that sets it apart from other ‘out of town’ science park locations in the cluster. The regeneration of this area of south Cambridgeshire, which is already attracting a young, dynamic business community, will in turn bring economic benefits to the surrounding areas.
