Cobalt Business Park is the United Kingdom’s largest business park, home to firms like Capita, Unison, and Helplink. Established in 1988, Highbridge has excelled in business park developments and industrial projects throughout the UK, but they are currently heavily focused on expanding in the data center market.
The development of Cobalt created thousands of new jobs in the region and an investment in public transportation to make the site accessible and more desirable. An example of the satisfied customers is evident in the office park’s 96% occupancy and 88% retention rate, but it is now drawing attention to its data center offering.
Highbridge completed the UK data center expansion in 2013. The property was built with incentives resulting in competitive pricing. One of the many benefits, including being the greenest facility in the UK based on its BREEAM accreditation and a PUE of 1.15, that draw firms to the property.
