Where is the Innovation Hub?

While the I-Construct team supports businesses across the whole of the South East LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership) and beyond, our new physical Innovation Hub is in Braintree, Essex.

The Innovation Hub is next-door to the site of the existing Braintree Enterprise Centre. The Enterprise Centre is made up of business incubators and meeting rooms. This means there is additional space to accommodate SMEs requirements as the project grows.

Braintree already has a STEM Innovation Centre, where students train in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics disciplines. Construction is also underway for a new business and innovation park, Horizon 120.

The South East LEP has the highest proportion of construction companies of all LEPs. It also has large-scale house-building ambitions, including the construction of over 86,000 homes in Garden Communities. The Hub will also be part of a national and international network of innovation and enterprise centres, including the BRE's (Building Research Establishment) global Innovation Parks Network.
