Forward® set up Boxworks at Bristol Temple Meads seven years ago, where it has since helped launch more than 80 start-ups and small businesses in sectors such as architecture, law, technology, charities, creative studios, and product design. Now it has moved to Brabazon, it will continue to foster the next generation of business talent in North Bristol.

The 20 private studios, which are designed for six to eight people to work in, will be operational at Brabazon in March 2024.

Each workspace is designed to be energy efficient. Each one is fully insulated and equipped with heating, lighting, and a broadband internet connection. The workspaces also have car parking, cycle storage and occupants will enjoy access to plenty of additional facilities at Aerospace Bristol.

Seb Loyn, Planning & Development Director at YTL Developments, said:

"Brabazon is designed to be the new home for Bristol’s next generation of pioneers. We want to live up to the legacy of Concorde and the former Airfield’s incredible record for innovation: Boxwork’s flexible and affordable workspaces for growing companies will provide a vital missing link in North Bristol’s business ecosystem."

Gavin Eddy, Founder & CEO at Forward®, shared his excitement about creating a cluster of ambitious businesses at Brabazon. He said:

"We are really excited to be relocating Boxworks to Brabazon. Boxworks set the standard for innovative workspaces at Temple Meads, and by partnering with YTL Developments on the most ambitious and exciting development in Bristol, this move offers a long-term opportunity to create and nurture a new cluster of ambitious and exciting businesses at Brabazon."
