Harlow District Council embarked on a programme of significant regeneration. One part of this is the Incubation Centre, this supports and helps develop small and embryonic businesses.

The project was let as a one stop construction consultancy service to Harlow Council for Architectural services, Quantity Surveying, Building Surveying, CDM Coordinator and Project Management, together with Mechanical & Electrical Services by Michael Prince Associates and Structural Engineering by Gyoury Self Partnership.

The existing building as it stood was nearing the end of its economical and structural life. The existing building consists of a traditional cavity construction, single glazing and a concrete flat roof.

The new centre is owned by Harlow District Council and has been funded by East of England Development Agency and the Department for Communities and Local Government.

The 1960s three storey office block has been refurbished to provide approximately 2,250m2 of high quality accommodation which will provide 55 units for new and developing enterprises configured in a wide range of sizes, from single occupancy offices to larger open plan spaces.

The major refurbishment has transformed the building from a near derelict office, into a vibrant modern centre incorporating many innovative and ecologically sound solutions, extending the useful life of the building by at least 30 years.

The new structure improvements coupled with modern energy efficient building services ensure energy consumption and carbon emissions are substantially reduced.
