Feilden+Mawson has won the commission for the Kings Lynn Innovation Centre, which will provide 2000sqm of flexible office space in the North Ouse Regeneration Area in West Norfolk.

This is a really exciting step forward for the town. Creating an environment in which business can thrive is vital to the long-term success of the local economy. The construction of the King's Lynn Enterprise and Innovation Centre gives a clear signal that King's Lynn is serious about developing business excellence and promoting growth.

- Alistair Beales, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Industrial -

The practice has developed a good and consistent track record of producing innovation centres over the years. Most, if not all have been funded through the public sector with the aim of regenerating areas and boosting local economies and start-up businesses in sectors including food, oil and gas, and offshore renewables.

I am absolutely delighted to have secured this important commission. Having recently completed Trinity House for Northumbrian Water in Lowestoft, I believe we are well placed to help NWES and the Borough of Kings Lynn and West Norfolk see this regeneration project a reality. Given its proximity to the A47, it is hoped that the building will form a new landmark and gateway building to both NORA and Kings Lynn.

- Philip Bodie, Feilden+Mawson-

The King's Lynn Innovation Centre is due for completion in 2016, providing a local hub for business formation and growth for generations to come.
