The Science and Technology Park (STP) in Ostrava, third biggest city in Czech Republic, is a common project of the City of Ostrava and the Technical University Ostrava. With its high quality landscaping and smart office buildings, this 10 ha STP attracts innovative businesses and research and development institutions. Ostrava Science and Technology Park interact well with the academic institutions as well as with student’s start-ups.
Royal HaskoningDHV assisted the City and University from the beginning; starting on a greenfield. Firstly, we prepared the business plan and feasibility study to establish and develop the STP. A concept inspired by similar parks in Limerick, Galway and Shannon has been developed with the assistance of the International Development Ireland Agency. Secondly, after the examination of the business plan and the overall concept of the Ostrava STP, we prepared the spatial concept of the park. The site is now fully occupied by various tenants (e.g. software companies and innovative businesses).
