Innovation Park Medway timeline
See below a timeline of the progress and development at Innovation Park Medway.
Read about the latest progress and developments.
Infrastructure work commences on our southern site. This includes the delivery of:
September 2021 to January 2022
Canterbury Archaeology Trust run a 4-month archaeological evaluation of the development area on the northern site.
An archaeological evaluation of the development area, conducted earlier in the year by Pre-Construct Archaeology, demonstrated the survival of archaeological remains. Any ground disturbance necessary for the development would have a direct impact on these remains, so it was important to investigate and record.

Work commences on the design of the Gateway Building on the northern site. This will be a landmark building offering office space, complimented with extensive collaboration space.
The building will form part of a Levelling Up Funding bid to the government in summer 2022.

Design work begins on one of the multi-storey carparks for the northern site, which will come forward in-line with some of the first buildings on site.
At the end of July, we submitted a Levelling Up Fund Round 2 bid for construction of the Gateway Building on the northern site and construction of one of the southern site office buildings.
If we secure the funding, the development will benefit from its proximity to Innovation Centre Medway, where occupants currently have a lack of ‘grow on space’ for their business location.
