Our Story

The site was once a thriving employment hub with a strong community spirit. Gravity will rekindle this ethos through the development of a place that is continually evolving, catering for tomorrow’s workforce whilst protecting the climate and environment.

Challenging the way we work, live and play

Salamanca Group has a track record in developing commercial real estate outside of the UK, yet they always aspired to create a flagship development in the UK. One that would bring together some of the greatest business minds to solve some of the biggest economic and environmental challenges we are facing and enhance the economic growth of the South West of England as well as the UK.

Salamanca wanted to build more than just bricks and mortar packaged up as an enterprise hub. They had a vision of building a forward-thinking sustainable, energy efficient and high-performing campus with a sense of community and set about finding the perfect location.

In 2017 This is Gravity Ltd was formed to bring the vision to reality. 

Building on history and moving toward a sustainable future

For over sixty years during the 20th Century, the Royal Ordnance Factory Bridgwater was based on the site. During this period, it was a significant production facility through wartime and peace.  Social clubs, sports teams and community events were the norm.

Building on its manufacturing past, buzz of activity and community spirit, Gravity will once again become an employment hub supporting an active ecosystem of businesses in a desirable environment.
