24 June 2014, A time lapse video showing how 101 Park Drive, which is part of a £15 million new office development by MEPC at Milton Park, Oxfordshire, has been built, has been launched to capture the construction and showcase the completed building to potential occupiers.

101 Park Drive is one half of two high specification office buildings that have been under construction since March 2013.  Part of the Science Vale UK Enterprise Zone, the buildings are the only new Grade A office accommodation available to let in Oxfordshire and total 55,500 sq ft and will house 500 staff.

The time lapse video charts the 14 months that it has taken for 101 Park Drive to be built and offers an insight into the construction techniques and the end result which captures the building’s contemporary and high specification design.

Andrew Barlow, commercial director at MEPC, said: "We have always found time lapse video an incredible way to capture a significant build on the Park. Using time lapse videos are a great means of marketing the building to potential occupiers, to show those companies who will take space how their building has been constructed and how they will become part of a modern and dynamic business park. With such an investment we wanted to document and showcase the building to our customers.

“Our substantial investment in these two buildings reinforces our confidence in the improving Oxfordshire economy and its attractiveness as a great location for local, national and international businesses. We pride ourselves on our ability to give our customers a great place to work, with flexibility and great customer amenities, which is reflected in our 85% tenant retention rate.”

Rated BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC A Rating, 101 and 102 Park Drive are available as two connected buildings for one occupier or on a floor by floor basis.

Milton Park is now home to more than 200 companies employing 6,800 staff and is one of UK’s largest business communities. It totals 300 acres of outstanding landscaped grounds. 101 and 102 Park Drive have been designed and built to the best modern standards, offering minimal environmental impact and the lowest running costs. A further 200,000 sq ft of office, laboratory and industrial development are planned at Milton Park for the next two years.
