Engineering Units Given the Green Light

3 November 2017

Plans for another ‘i-brand’ initiative in Bedford have been approved by Bedford Borough Council’s planning committee.

The i-worx project received the green light recently from the committee to go ahead with its plans to deliver an Advanced Technology and Engineering Workshop Cluster offering twelve bespoke, modern engineering and work shop spaces on the Marston Vale Business Park site. The units will be ideal for new and expanding engineering businesses and perfectly located adjacent to the well-connected A421.

The i-Worx will join other successful Bedford Borough Council i-Brand serviced buildings including the ‘i-Lab’, ‘i-Kan’ and ‘i-Create’, which currently provide a business base and support for over 140 businesses.

The project is being developed following the Council’s successful bid to the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) for £2.5 million of Local Growth Funding. Construction is due to start in the new year and it is planned that the new units will open their doors in the Summer of 2018.

Mayor Dave Hodgson said: “Our expanding portfolio of i-brand initiatives provide high quality business environments for a wide variety of business needs.  These are exciting times for entrepreneurs looking for a base in Bedford Borough in which they can grow their innovative business ideas.”
