Willmott Dixon’s team in the North are delivering 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 3,200 square metres of commercial floor space made up of grade-A office and workshop accommodation, much-needed high quality conferencing facilities, and a welcoming communal café hub that will act as a focal point for the business park.
Procured using the YORbuild2 framework, phase one of RaisE is being delivered with East Riding Infrastructure & Facilities and is set for completion in early 2022.
RaisE is the latest in Willmott Dixon’s portfolio to support innovation in the rail sector. In February the business handed over the £47m School of Engineering to the University of Birmingham. Completed in partnership with the UK Rail Research and Innovation Network (UKRRIN), the building unites existing academic and industry capabilities to innovate and support transformational change within the rail technology sector, globally.
