Hartpury University and Hartpury College
What we provided:
A SKA Gold rated Modular Construction
Agri-Tech Education SME
The Tech Box Park development has enabled Hartpury University to have the correct built environment giving the drive of productivity and competitiveness in the agricultural and land-based industries.
The Tech Box Park facility function serves as flexible workspace for a new digital innovation agri-tech project. The project is for high growth SMEs who already operate within the agri-tech sector. The centre facilitates research, development and testing of new products and the improvement of existing products.
As part of Hartpury’s ambition to be leaders in shaping the future of digital farming, and in line with the technological future-facing nature of the centre the environmental impact was a key factor in constructing the development from the beginning.
Modular construction was the right choice to fit the limited budget and to decrease the build program, compared with traditional building. This allowed Hartpury to use the facilities as soon as possible.
This project is one of many that supports Hartpury’s goal to create a Digital Innovation Farm that will become a state-of-the-art complex and the National Centre for Agricultural Data Management by 2030.
