Enterprise Park Gets Its First Tenant

The first tenant to sign up for new premises in the recently-opened Enterprise Centre on Coventry University's Technology Park will receive their keys tomorrow. 

Nigel Carley from D4i represents the first SME (small- to medium-sized enterprise) to move into the Enterprise Centre.

D4i - Design for Innovation - provides detailed technical CAD design; feasibility support, component build construction; hardware and software evolution and peripheral technological support.

Bosses at the university say the firm is exactly the sort of company that they want to attract to the Technology Park.

The Enterprise Centre is the second building to be built on the Technology Park.

It provides units from 54 sq m (581 sq ft) to 400 sq m (4,306 sq ft) and can be leased for between three and ten years.

The three-storey building provides energy efficient space, with each suite fitted with single-phase electric power and state-of-the-art ISDN/ASDL telephone lines.

The £3 million development - which received over £1 million worth of grant funding from the European Regional Development Fund, will provide dedicated accommodation for small- and medium-sized enterprises.

John Latham, managing director of the University's trading company, CUE Ltd, which manages the Technology Park, said:

“The Enterprise Centre will provide an excellent working environment for 'growing' technology-based companies.

“The space is available for technology, manufacturing and research and development-related uses.

“It has the added benefit of superb conference and support facilities in the TechnoCentre adjoining the new building.

“Occupants of the new building can only benefit from the expertise and facilities available within Coventry University.

”I am confident that the new development will bring in around 260 jobs to complement the 250 now working in the TechnoCentre.
