On 22nd February 1939, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth formally opened the Team Valley Trading Estate, spending 3 hours on site and unveiling a commemorative plaque at St Georges House. Today, Team Valley is the largest industrial estate in single freehold ownership in the country. It is host to over 700 businesses, employing 20,000 people, and is still regarded in the property world as an exemplar of commercial property and is known throughout the world.
FaulknerBrowns Architects won a design competition run by UK Land Estates to establish a new masterplan for the estate. The masterplan which emerged responds to and enhances the existing character of Team Valley Trading Estate whilst creating new infrastructure strategies and establishing a strong design code to inform future development.
