MIRA Technology Park is the UK's dedicated enterprise zone for the transport technology sector.

Delivering a full refurbishment of an engineering technology park’s catering facilities while ensuring they remained open for business throughout was the challenge set to Blueprint by MIRA Technology Park, the UK’s dedicated Enterprise Zone for the transport technology sector.

We were tasked with creating a new shared food and social hub, comprising a canteen, communal space and Costa Coffee, at MIRA Technology Park, a 1.75 million sq ft estate for automotive research and development.

We’ve seen a lot of change here at MIRA Technology Park over the past few years and months and it was great to see a company like Blueprint coming in, understanding our brand and our objectives for this project and helping us to bring them to life in our new food and social hub.

This was a fairly complex project, with Blueprint managing it and some of the on-site maintenance team doing certain aspects, along with the need to keep our existing facility operational, so it was great to see everyone working together to make the project a success.

I’m delighted that by working with the Blueprint team, we’ve been able to solve the problems that we set them at the start of this project to deliver a fantastic new focal point at the heart of the park where people can take time out from their working day to eat, relax and socialise.
