Innovation Park Watford

The BRE Watford Innovation Park is the flagship development of an international network of innovation parks

Launched in 2005, the Park at BRE's headquarters in Garston, Watford, continues to set the standard for BRE's Innovation Parks across the world.  The Park started life as a small-scale demonstration of modern-methods-of-construction (MMC) and quickly developed in a facility rich in innovation.

The Watford Park attracts around 20,000 visitors per year, from within the UK and overseas, and has 12 full-scale demonstration buildings.
