Brno’s Technology Park located adjacent to the Brno University of Technology has enjoyed a successful period of expansion in recent times with completion of a second new office building for the US IT Company Red Hat and a further six new tenant companies attracted to the location.
Red Hat, the leading provider of open source solutions, already commenced operations at the Park in 2014 with completion of the first office building providing 3,781 sq m (net) state of the art class A office space for 350 employees. Just twelve months later the company asked the developer of the Park, Technology Park Brno, a.s., to construct a second office building slightly larger at 4,273 sq m (net) to accommodate a further 400 employees which was completed in April 2017. The two buildings are connected and enjoy an enviable location surrounded by pleasant green landscaping and cascading central water features.
Red Hat has been growing in Brno for more than ten years and now employs over
1,000 people. “The new building offers a fantastic environment that we
believe, attracts and retains the greatest talents that will support the
continued growth of Red Hat in Brno,” stated Radovan Musil, MD of the Red Hat
Czech development centre. Red Hat’s Development Centre is designed to support
the next generation of developers and engineers. It also includes close
collaboration with local universities, where Red Hat provides students with open
source technologies and support to gain significant practical experience. There
is a significant location advantage that the Park offers being immediately
adjacent to the Brno University of Technology.
