Risk Assessment


We complete fire risk assessments on a regular basis.

Detection and fire extinguisher units are tested and in place. Construction of the current buildings was completed in late 2006 so is built to recent fire regulations. An early warning fire detection system linked to the fire station is in place.

Additional info:
Nearest fire station: 1.5 miles.
Estimated time: 6 minutes.


We are not in a flood risk area (elevated position) nor are we located near any rivers or flood plains or areas that have experienced flooding which may present a problem in the foreseeable future. Enviroment Agency flood map (External link).

We are also not located in a position that has experienced watershed flooding and the construction of the Science Park meets recent building regulations with regard to water run off and soak away specification.

Nearest major river: Nene
Distance: >4 miles.


We are not adjacent to any risks of this nature.

Vicinity Risks

No fuel storage depots or direct low flight paths or other risks have been identified in the vicinity.


Additional (light hearted risks.)
