Medical and science firms are creating North Bristol hotspot

November 3, 2011

North Bristol is becoming a hotspot for medical and scientific businesses with increased demand for space from medical companies on its business parks.

The claim comes from  Chris Davies, South West leasing manager at SEGRO, the commercial property investment and development company. He said: “This part of North Bristol is rapidly becoming a specialist area. We have always seen that like-minded businesses prefer to operate alongside each other and that can be a significant boost for particular parks."
SEGRO is seeing an increase in inquiries from science and medical business at Emerald Park at Emersons Green, one of its four  locations around Bristol, according to Mr Davies. "We already have Medequip and the Blood and Transplant service from the NHS and it seems that the opening of the nearby Bristol and Bath Science Park has attracted even more interest," he said.
Industrial property specialist Jonathan Allen of Colliers International added: “There is no doubt that if an area can become well-known for a particular type of business it will attract more of the same. Add to that the superb location of 
North Bristol, close to the motorway interchange, and you have a strong case for businesses to move in.”
