Bicester Garden Town - Environment

Eco Business Centre

The Eco Business Centre, in North West Bicester, was developed by us and is an exemplar in sustainability. It is zero carbon and is the first non-residential Passivhaus Plus building in the UK, a rigorous standard for energy efficiency, quality and comfort.

Bicester Eco Centre

Opened in September 2019, the building is managed by Town Square Spaces Ltd and provides a base for businesses, as well as a coworking space for local people to network and share ideas.

When the Eco Business Centre was first conceived, we wanted a building with the highest standards of energy efficiency, but also an environment where people genuinely wanted to work.

There are now 11 companies operating out of the Eco Business Centre, each bringing valuable jobs to the local economy. It also provides an excellent base for the growing number of self-employed residents to work from, retaining a wealth of creativity and expertise to the region.

This plays an important part in delivering Bicester’s garden town principles, giving members of the community access to good local jobs in a healthy environment.
