A New Commercial Hub for Brighton

Construction of our Central Research Laboratory is soon to begin, with the 50,000 sqft scheme for developer U+I aiming to cement Brighton’s position as one of the best places in the world to be an entrepreneur and an inventor.


Contractors GRAHAM have been appointed to build the CRL, a project which is geared towards small businesses and start-ups, providing a variety of flexible workspaces, as well as prototyping facilities, events spaces and a landscaped roof garden.


Anticipated to complete in 2019, the CRL marks the first phase of works on our overall Preston Barracks masterplan, which will transform a Georgian army barracks site into new homes and a rejuvenated university campus.
