Building Research Park

Platforms

Hempsec pods

The Building Research Park has a number of test platforms that act as bases on which you can build your ideal prototype construction. 

The 5m x 5m platform foundations are built towards the south of the park and allow for the creation of small temporary building structures up to 125m3. The platforms facilitate full-scale trials and novel demonstrations, making them ideal for time critical research and validation of laboratory test results.
