Science & Technology Clusters

Creative Space specialises in developing clusters of high growth businesses, providing flexible incubation, start-up and grow-on facilities.

The company provided a change management process at the Advanced Manufacturing Park Technology Centre resulting in the loss-making business becoming profitable through significant improvements to marketing, lettings and customer relationship management.

With an active programme of events, networking activities and companies expanding from the Technology Centre into larger units, the Advanced Manufacturing Park has seen significant growth with Rolls Royce expanding its operations and the development of Sheffield University’s Nuclear Advance Manufacturing Research Centre.

Creative Space has also assisted Science City in Newcastle, leading on the development of the business plan for the first new building to be constructed on the  Science Central site in 2015 and which will be the starting point for a further 25 acres of science and technology development located on the edge of Newcastle city centre, adjacent to St. James’ Park stadium.

what our clients say

The energy, vision and enthusiasm that Toby and Paul brought to the project within a very challenging timescale were of great importance in helping GYBC secure grants of over £6m to enable works to begin on conversion of the Grade 1 listed St. George’s Chapel. The highly credible outline Business Plan has proved to be a sound basis for developing a viable enterprise, enabling work to commence on site with a high level of confidence.
