Strong credentials in Energy Efficiency and Environmental Sustainability
Brent Liu of Changan UK R&D Centre:
"Part of the reason we came to No.1 Nottingham Science Park was because the building has such strong credentials in terms of energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, and that fits well with Changan's view of our future development direction and automotive industry trend"
Changan Automotive is one of China's largest automakers. Changan's UK R&D operation is concentrating on developing drivetrain technology for electric vehicles.
An Income Generator
Paul Vernon of Oegen:
"We made a bold move to come to the Science Park mid recession in 2009. Some people questioned how wise we were to be increasing our costs at such a low in the world economy. Things could not have worked out better, in our first 4 months we have generated more business than in the previous 12. A large part of the credit for this must go to No.1 Nottingham Science Park. Our new clients have been won over by the environment and high quality of space when they visit and our staff have been energised."
Oegen is a visual application development company producing interactive websites for clients around the globe.
The Cluster Effect
Pat Tindale of 4Energy:
"As the first tenants in No.1 Nottingham Science Park we have been able to grow with the building. It has been great to see a stream of new tenants move in, in fact we have started to benefit from each others enterprise. We are working with other tenants on projects for and with their clients and I know that this is happening across the board at No.1 Nottingham Science Park. 4Energy have actually doubled in size since moving in."
