Another riverside letting for Granta Park


29-06-2010

Fast growing IT optimisation company Intergence Systems has taken 5,060 sq ft of office and lab space at the new Riverside development at Granta Park.

The company, which has grown by 40% each year since it was set up in 2003, has moved from Quern Mill at Great Shelford to the ground floor of 3 Riverside as part of an expansion.

Says CEO Peter Job: “Moving to Granta Park gives us the opportunity to continue to grow into additional space as we need it as well as offering the right facilities and environment for us as we move more towards developing our own software products and services. The location is also ideal for the many international clients we have flying in.”

The company is currently fitting out the building to meet its specific needs: “Like us Granta Park’s operators MEPC are committed to green energy so we are making maximum use of existing facilities as well as enhancing them for our specific requirement. In addition to our own products we are collaborating with another Cambridge company, Green Energy Options to ensure our building is as green as possible” adds Peter Job.

Intergence will have 35 to 40 staff on site. The company also has regional operations in the Middle East and New York.

Says Roz Bird, Marketing & Asset Manager at Granta Park: “We are delighted to be welcoming Intergence to Granta Park and will be working with them to make sure they maximise all the benefits of the location including the gym, café and nursery, involvement in networking opportunities, and the Green Travel Plan which makes the commute to work as easy and as environmentally friendly as possible. Intergence Systems have already made a contribution to the Granta Park Facilities Managers’ group by providing a presentation about their energy saving initiatives to be installed within their new suite which is great to see.”

Says Will Mooney of Granta Park’s letting agents Jeffersons Commercial: “Although things are undoubtedly tough out there – not helped in the last couple of months by companies waiting to see was the Government was going to do – there still is a demand for well located, new, Grade A accommodation.”

Granta Park’s Riverside development offers smaller R&D and office units from 2,640 to 60,000 sq ft, specifically developed to allow smaller companies to work within a thriving science community. Managed and operated by MEPC, Granta Park is located south of Cambridge in the heart of the Cambridge Science Cluster. Companies on the business estate include MedImmune, Pifzer, PPD and TWI.
