Breaking new ground

No-one has built a research park like this before.

TCI is being developed for researchers by researchers. To do this, we’ve assembled a team that allies the wisdom and insight of leading researchers to expertise in development, construction and master-planned communities.

Here are some of the people that are helping TCI break new ground.
