Office and Laboratory Accommodation

Available on a tenancy basis: a range of office and bioscience laboratory accommodation as described in locations section. Flexible lease options are available.

License under 12 months – Provides flexible easy-in, easy-out terms. Vital for when a business needs to grow. License can be rolled over into a larger unit, or alternatively, only one month’s notice required if needing to leave.

Lease over 12 months – For a more secure tenancy, leases are available up to two years with qualifying incentives such as rental holidays.

Pay As You Grow – For companies that will need larger space in a short time due to sustained growth. UMIC can provide a ‘tailor made incentive’ on accessing larger offices based upon growth targets.
