The Pool Innovation Centre is a state-of-the-art three storey building with a net lettable floor space of approximately 2245m². Accommodating up to 70 businesses the Centre provides dynamic office space, access to individually tailored business support services, cutting-edge meeting & conference facilities, informal networking areas, fabulous connectivity and technology and a vibrant and collaborative business community to help grow your business.
The Pool Innovation Centre has been designed and built to the BREEAM Excellence standard, one of the highest levels of environmental accreditation available for new buildings. This ensures that the Centre’s environmental impact was low during construction and will also be throughout its lifespan, making it a great business address.
The Centre provides accessible parking places close to the main entrance. Hearing induction loops have been designed into the building and we have lift access to all floors within the Centre.
The management of the Pool Innovation Centre is being delivered by Plymouth University on behalf of Cornwall Council. The Centre’s building has been supported by European Regional Development Fund, ERDF Convergence investment, South West Regional Development Agency and Cornwall Development Company.
