Innovation Central

Designed by award-winning architects Hawkins\Brown, the building will work with business and society to create, test and incubate new initiatives.

Globally connected, the vibrant hub will nurture partnerships between entrepreneurs, business leaders, professional advisers, academics and students.

The Innovation Central building will be built on the Maindy Road site as part of the Innovation Campus. It will house two facilities, both working with business and wider society to make great ideas a reality.

The design includes cafes and creative areas, public open spaces, and car parks.
