sbarc | spark
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.
An attractive and stimulating environment designed to encourage out-of-the-ordinary creative thinking and the exploration of new possibilities.
Featuring commercial units and lab space for spin-outs and start-ups, spark will house facilities that help us work with collaborators to bring ideas to life – from a secure level data facility to a fabrication lab, visualisation centre, and broadcast suite.
A key component of spark is the social and shared space to produce an environment that encourages creativity, innovation and collaboration.
A door to innovation
The spark 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.
