Innovation hub planned for Goole
Willmott Dixon has been chosen to deliver a new £8M business centre and innovation hub for East Riding of Yorkshire Council that will offer flexible office and workshop space for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) on the Goole 36 Enterprise Zone.
The Rail, accelerator and innovation solutions hub for Enterprise (RaisE), will provide 3,200m2 of commercial floor space made up of grade-A office and workshop accommodation, high quality conferencing facilities, and a communal café.
Paul Bell, Head of Economic Development and Communications at East Riding of Yorkshire Council said: “The council is absolutely delighted to see building work on this business centre and innovation hub start. We know that, once completed, it will stand proudly alongside Siemens state-of-the-art rail manufacturing facility, and will be another glowing example of how Goole is viewed as a flourishing economic area for investment and growth.”
Anthony Dillon, Managing Director for Willmott Dixon in the North said: “We’re proud to play our part in delivering such an important and exciting project, which will support and enable the Goole 36 Enterprise Zone to become a hub for the region’s SME businesses to thrive.
“Supporting our communities in these times of uncertainty is more important than ever, delivering RaisE will allow us to work with regional supply chain partners, creating employment opportunities for local young people, former members of our armed forces and ex-offenders as well as empowering local causes and organisations that directly impact the lives of those in need.”
