      What we do/ Our Projects/ Howbery Park

      Delivering a master plan which creates a centre of excellence for water and environmental research and innovation

      Howbery Park

      Size
      70 acres

      Location
      Oxfordshire

      HR Wallingford was originally a government agency created for hydraulic research and privatised in the 80s, but remains situated on its own 70-acre park on the edge of Wallingford, bounded by the River Thames.

      Boasting unique testing and research facilities attracting a global client base, the location benefits from significant agencies such as the Met Office, Environment Agency, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and British Geological Survey, either on the park on in adjacent buildings. 

      Bidwells has been instructed to lead a development plan to create a centre of excellence for water and environmental research and innovation and to provide a variety of business spaces to cater for start-ups to established corporates, respecting and maximising the unique parkland setting and creating a truly sustainable legacy.  

      Howbery Park

      Working with a leading architect, we have drawn up a master plan to provide a further 200,000 sq ft in an exceptional environment including an exemplar building on the flood plain area.

      The master plan will enable a cluster of innovation companies to help tackle environmental, water and flood resilience issues as well as building on the exceptional work already undertaken on the park.
