Sod Cutting Ceremony marks the official start of i-Worx construction

17 April 2018

Works officially began on the i-Worx project following the sod-cutting ceremony on the 16th April. The i-Worx project was developed after Bedford Borough Council’s successful bid to the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) for £2.5 million of Local Growth Funding.

The project features an advanced Technology and Engineering Workshop Cluster offering twelve modern engineering and workshop spaces which will form part of the new Bedford Commercial Park.

Bedford Commercial Park will be a 70 acre mixed use development with supporting services located conveniently adjacent to the well-connected A421.  Following its completion, the Park will be home to approximately 1600 jobs.

Bedford Mayor Dave Hodgson said: “The i-Worx project is an exciting addition to our expanding portfolio of i-brand initiatives particularly for new and expanding engineering businesses. i-Worx is set to join other successful i-Brand serviced buildings  including  i-Lab, i-Kan and i-Create, which currently provide a business base for over 150 businesses.”

He continues: “This i-Worx site is just one of many developments that represent the Council’s ambition to promote our local economy as outlined in the Bedford Borough Growth Plan 2018-2022. By investing in the growth of existing businesses as well as encouraging new investment, the Council is committed to making the Borough not only a great place to do business but a fantastic place to live.”

The i-Worx site is due to be completed in autumn 2018. To find out more about  i-Worx or other Bedford Borough Council i-Brand serviced buildings please visit:
