Innovation Hub

A Business Innovation Hub for Construction

The I-Construct Innovation Hub, a £2.3 million centre of excellence for construction innovation is based in Braintree, Essex.

The Innovation Hub, built to BREEAM Excellent standard, is located next to the Braintree Enterprise Centre.

Braintree District Council invested £1.5 million into the build of the centre and the remaining funding provided by the European Regional Development Fund.

The hub's facilities are designed to be used to support individuals to start up a business in construction and construction-related sectors, nurture early-stage SMEs and facilitate the commercialisation of new ideas, technologies and research into construction markets.
