Project Completion Date


Spring 2022

The Harlow Science Park is the flagship development of the Harlow Enterprise Zone, providing space for science and technology companies and bringing many high value jobs to Harlow. It is specifically designed to provide high quality space that will complement the science parks in the Cambridge area and capitalise upon the growth of the science and technology sectors in the London Stansted Cambridge Corridor.

Nexus, a 2,800 sqm multi-tenant office building was selected as the first development within Harlow Science Park along with the Anglia Ruskin University’s Arise building.

The project seeks to establish the required fit-out across the first and second floors ready for tenant occupation and also to establish a co-working space within the ground floor as a further response to the pandemic.

This co-working space will meet the requirements of organisations that require flexible remote working solutions as they disaggregate from central offices within city centres as well as provide important incubation space for new companies as they develop the critical mass required to establish their own dedicated facility.

The project establishes 296 jobs and contributes to the wider success of Harlow Enterprise Zone.
