Our solution

Clague proposed a high quality, serviced office facility that could act as an ‘incubator’ for new and establishing businesses, in particular those that deal in new technologies. This was the second phase of a concept, instigated by Medway Council following the successful initial development within the BAE Rochester site.

The results

The 30,000sq.ft Innovation Centre comprises modulated modern office spaces for small businesses, as well as a large, open plan second floor suite for a blue chip tenant. The offices are supported by a permanently manned reception area and post room, plus a substantial café, a formal 75 seat business conference suite and a number of informal lounges.

The three storey masonry and glass facility acts as a gateway building, working within constraints dictated by the A229 and nearby Rochester Airport.
