HEWLETT Packard Enterprise is moving out of Bracknell and the offices the tech giant is leaving behind are set to get a makeover.

The software firm was one of the biggest employers in Bracknell Forest but is now set to set-up shop at Winnersh Triangle in Wokingham borough by the end of the year.

This means the Amen Corner site, which was home to Hewlett Packard Enterprise on Cain Road, is now set to be transformed as developers make new use of the space.

Planning proposals submitted to Bracknell Forest Council (BFC) indicate the current buildings on site will be demolished, with new industrial and warehouse units set to go up in their place.

ANALYSIS: Why is HP Enterprise moving out of Bracknell

A report from developers read: “The applicant is looking to invest in the site to provide new business units designed to modern requirements.

Bracknell News:

“It is recognised that good design can help promote sustainable development, improve the quality of the existing environment, attract investment, and reinforce civic pride and a sense of place.”

Applicants want to provide “flexible” small to medium-sized warehouse accommodation with some office space “suitable for a variety of tenants”.

It is hoped local and regional start-up businesses will occupy the eastern section of the site as units there are planned to be smaller.

Bracknell News:

The western side would feature larger units and are designed to attract “more-established” local and national firms.

Twenty-two new units are planned altogether.

According to the planning documents, HP Enterprises built their Cain Road space and have occupied the site since the late 1980s.

But a developer’s report claimed HPE was moving out as the buildings in the vicinity are “outdated, obsolete and no longer meet the needs of most occupiers, and as such, they have little prospect of attracting any new tenants following the departure of HPE later this year.”

The report also revealed: “Three of the large office buildings in the vicinity of the site are vacant or well below full capacity and have been for a period of time, with one currently being converted to residential flats demonstrating the lack of demand for such buildings.”

Bracknell Forest Council is yet to make a decision on the transformation of the Cain Road site.
