The Enterprise Hub provides a designated modern and fully equipped co-working space, beneficial for early-stage businesses and entrepreneurs to use flexibly. It includes collaborative yet informal learning/work zones, a start-up business incubator, open-plan areas, and offices. The Enterprise Hub facilitates the delivery of teaching and studies through teaching spaces, exam spaces, and social café & dining spaces. The project had to align with the brief and architect’s visions of an industrial and modern style. This was accomplished, resulting in a stunning working space.
The project demanded a comprehensive product selection as well as bespoke item design. As the sole supplier, this posed a time challenge. Nevertheless, Showcase PSR Portsdown worked alongside the main contractor to create an installation plan, ensuring the building opened on schedule. The instalment took place during the start of COVID. Therefore, it was over a year before we received feedback from staff and students as they could not immediately enter the space. However, the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. The Hub is now the most used and visited building on campus.
