Why choose The Heath
The Heath, owned and operated by SOG Group, is one of the UK’s leading independently-owned business and technical parks. However, it’s not just our cost-effective space and extensive free car parking which has encouraged 170 companies from more than 20 different business sectors to locate here.
The Heath offers far more than simply affordable accommodation. By basing your business here you and your staff have immediate access to an unrivalled range of specialist support services. From meetings and conference rooms to lecture theatre, restaurant and on-site gymnasium and leisure suite, The Heath offers businesses – small and large – the kind of facilities normally found in big corporations.
And for scientific businesses undertaking their research & development at The Heath, we offer on-site technical support that you simply won’t find at other locations. Our experts are just along the corridor, whether you require precision engineering and scientific glassblowing or bespoke laboratory design and build. We have highly skilled and vastly experience technicians here to help you.
Space for everyone
The Heath is uniquely placed to provide start-up or growing companies with immediate access to very high quality laboratory space or office accommodation which our technicians can redesign and adapt to your exacting requirements. At the same time we have the land and capability, if required, to design and construct cost-effective, purpose-built facilities that can be operational within nine months from concept to completion.
It’s a formula that has proved immensely popular with our residents because businesses locating here can start work virtually immediately and then have the flexibility to seamlessly expand operations within our site without interrupting their business flow. We also operate a licence system at The Heath which provides organisations with full flexibility which is something residents have found reassuring.
The buzz of our campus-style environment
There’s a compelling buzz the moment you walk on to The Heath. Our campus-style environment encourages residents to mix together and exchange ideas. The combination of large multi-nationals working side-by-side with dynamic owner-managed businesses in our great facilities is an enticing recipe. We have numerous examples of residents co-operating and collaborating with each other to help to develop their businesses.
Close to new Mersey Crossing
Located just 2 miles from the River Mersey, The Heath is also ideally situated to meet demands for space from organisations working on the Mersey Crossing programme who require a base which is close to the construction site.
Londoneast-uk – our sister site in London
The Heath’s unique business model has been hailed as a template for regeneration with SOG Group now acting as a consultant to advise how other scientific sites that are closing or downsizing can be regenerated and reinvigorated, using the concept developed so successfully in Runcorn.
SOG Group has recently purchased 17 acres of state-of-the-art laboratories, sterile manufacturing buildings, offices and development land from global pharmaceutical company Sanofi in London.
SOG Group is now creating Londoneast-uk Business and Technical Park which operates as a sister site to The Heath – providing London and the Home Counties with urgently needed research & development space. Critically, businesses locating to Londoneast-uk will also have access to the specialist technical support that is available to residents at The Heath.
Our serviced offices and laboratory accommodation at both sites offer a cost-effective and highly desirable alternative to traditional, inflexible leases with space to suit your bespoke needs. Space is available on flexible license terms so should your business grow you can simply relocate without changing your business address.
You can talk to our professional accommodation team to discuss the construction of new office accommodation as part of our extensive new-build programme whilst our customer care team is on hand at all times to offer any help or advice to both residents and visitors.
