The Future of Life Sciences in Oxford


Built on a design philosophy that encourages and enhances collaboration via its extensive amenity offering.

The building is inspired by a covered market and urban streetscape, where placemaking is at the heart of the design.

Its stunning reception and network of high streets and squares presents the opportunity for collaboration. The building features an onsite café, offering a range of healthy food and drink options throughout the day, and a variety of formal and informal meeting areas.

ESG Credentials

A building designed with
sustainability in mind.

Inventa has been designed with sustainability in mind, through the utilisation of in-situ flat slabs selected for minimum embodied carbon (realising a 50% reduction in embodied carbon vs. steel frame option).

Retention of existing structure has halved the concrete required to build new roof structures, significantly reducing overall embodied carbon.
