Responsible Management Granta Park’s on-site team manages all aspects of the science park, including developments, asset management, facilities management, and health and safety. The team is available to provide support to occupiers as required. Latz and Co, one of the foremost landscape designers in Germany, and Eric Parry Architects developed the master plan for the park with the aim of preserving the existing rural landscape and ensuring the site would be easily accessible. The Park offers a uniquely natural landscape that is quintessentially English. The grounds include the River Granta, chalk grassland meadows, woodlands, a lake, and the focal point of a traditional cricket pitch. The meadow is rich with wild flowers and insects in the summer and autumn, essential to visiting birds such as swallows and house martins. The lake is an essential aspect of drainage management on-site, and thousands of new trees have been planted on the site over the last ten years, including many lining the main avenues, in the parking groves, and within the existing woodland area which runs along the park’s northern perimeter next to the River Granta.
