Imagine a brand new state-of-the-art facility, designed and built just for the public sector. Imagine that it’s 200,000 sq.ft. in size and can comfortably accommodate up to a 3,500 strong workforce. A workforce who, on a daily basis, serve, manage, protect, treat and support their communities and the people in them. Now imagine you and your team being amongst this workforce and being based in such a facility – which is rated by Breeam* as “excellent” – and sharing not just the space but common goals and knowledge with other like minded public bodies.
Well, imagine no more. For in 2018, this £70 million, green technology laden, sustainable facility will be a reality; and will be opening its doors to all those interested in working smarter. Welcome to the Bradford Public Service Hub.
Located in the centre of Bradford, the Hub is a 2 minutes walk from the multi award-winning City Park, 5 to 10 minutes from the bus and train stations, the Broadway (Westfield’s new shopping development), modern city centre living apartments, as well as hotels, restaurants and bars. It has everything for those looking for a healthier, work life balance.
* BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method.

- Modern, cost effective, efficient working environments
- Minimised operating costs through the use of sustainable building design
- Opportunities for collaboration and shared services and facilities provision
- Excellent location with great access to the building via public transport and road
Why everyone's talking about Bradford as the next big thing
Everyone’s looking for the next big development opportunity. Many are now taking a look at the City of Bradford, the Producer City. With close to a billion pounds worth of projects in the regeneration pipeline across the District, it’s a city that no savvy investor or developer can choose to ignore.
This historic location, the centre of the textile revolution, is the UK’s 5th biggest city and has the Yorkshire Dales on its doorstep. It is home to Saltaire, a World Heritage Site, and an internationally renowned University & Business School. It is rich in diversity, with over 100 languages spoken across the District. It doesn’t stop there. Bradford also has a very young, highly motivated potential workforce waiting in the wings. With around a quarter of its population 16 or under, shrewd investors will be quick to capitalise on this powerhouse in the years to come.
With Leeds 25 minutes, Manchester 40 minutes, Birmingham 2 hours and London only 2.5 hours away, you don’t really need an airport. But if you really do want one as part of your plans, then it has that too; Leeds Bradford Airport is only a few minutes away with many international flights flying daily.
The Council welcomes enquires from parties interested in wishing to relocate their organisations into the Bradford Public Services Hub.
