Fareham Innovation Centre Phase 1 was a remarkable success and occupancy levels massively exceeded expectations. A mark of this was that it won the award for the most innovative small business project at the Federation of Small Businesses Awards in 2015.
In June 2016, The Practice was invited to design Phase 2 of the Centre which aims to build on that success. It could also provide some of the facilities that phase 1 lacked, namely large-scale conference facilities.
Phase 2 totals 3400m² and is sited immediately adjacent to Phase 1 providing an additional 33 offices and 5 workshops. The phases are physically linked at two levels, so their facilities can be shared.
The existing building remains the hub of the Innovation Centre and will continue to provide reception, management support facilities and small meeting rooms.
The extension is two storeys generally but includes a third storey to accommodate the conference facilities. This also benefits from an external terrace which has panoramic views of the airfield. it is designed using the same materials and architectural language as Phase 1 so there is no obvious distinction between the two.
The scheme began on site in June 2017 and was completed ahead of schedule.
