Juniper acquires development site

Wed 12 Aug 2015

In 2011 Juniper was appointed by Ion Science, a world leading gas detection firm, to find and acquire a site upon which to build its proposed new headquarters. The business had formed and grown in the village of Fowlmere to the south west of Cambridge and remained keen to stay in that area, not least to retain key staff. The directors at Ion had a clear vision of building a low carbon, sustainable unit of 15,000 sq ft to house office, lab and dispatch functions and were keen to secure a greenfield site. After an extensive search and faced with many landowners seeking higher value residential consents, a suitable plot was found on the edge of Fowlmere village. The subsequent planning application required a public hearing but was eventually secured in 2014. Jamie Green adds 'We were thrilled to find this site after trawling the local area for several years. To end up keeping Ion in Fowlmere village is perfect, they are the last key employer and support a number oflocal jobs'
