THE DiRAC BUILDING

Vision becoming reality

Ideal for the next generation of technology disruptors and innovators, the Dirac Building will provide superb work spaces at St John’s Innovation Park.

A prominent building at the northern gateway to Cambridge, the 85,000 sq ft Dirac Building and neighbouring Transport Hub – incorporating a gym and extensive shower facilities – forms the next phase of development and highlights the College’s ambitions for the Park.

Smart & Intelligent

The Dirac Building has been designed with ‘intelligent building’ and ‘smart office’ best practice principles in mind; utilising technology and process to create a safer and more productive environment for occupiers, in addition to greater operational efficiency. Being mindful of the environmental impact of both the construction and onward management of these buildings is a priority for the College, as is the health and wellbeing of occupiers and visitors. The development is aiming to be best-in-class, targeting a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating. A WiredScore ‘Platinum Certification’ has already been achieved.

Workspaces of the Future

The Dirac Building will deliver advanced work-spaces, ideal for the next generation of technology disruptors and innovators via:

  • An accessible, well-connected, best-in-class building, benefiting not only those that occupy it but also the wider Park community.
  • An enhanced Park landscape for all, maintaining a good balance between the built and natural environment.
  • Additional amenity and enriched public realm focused on the health and wellbeing of all those at the Park.
  • BCO ventilation standards will be exceeded by over 30% throughout the building.

Covid secure design elements have been built in to the specification, including:

  • Minimal touch points - use of automatic doors where feasible.
  • Automatic WCs and wash hand basins.
  • Use of state of the art management tools, technology and process to create a safer and more productive environment for occupiers.
