Crawley Borough Council (CBC) has selected Morgan Sindall Construction’s Southern Home Counties business to undertake a building conversion project in Crawley, UK. 

The scope includes upgrades to mechanical, electrical, and plumbing works to deliver the new Crawley Innovation Centre.  

Procured through the SCAPE framework, the development will repurpose the former TUI Travel House located in the Manor Royal Business District of the city. 

The delivery will be a collaborative effort, with Morgan Sindall working alongside Miller Bourne Architects, Stephen Wilson Partnership Delta Green, and Yellow Wren. 

Morgan Sindall Construction Southern Home Counties area director Guy Hannell said: “We are really pleased to be working with Crawley Borough Council for the first time as they set upon their ambitious plans to grow the town’s economy.  

“The Innovation Centre is set to play a pivotal role in this – not just in the immediate future through jobs and impact to the supply chain – but the legacy this state-of-the-art, sustainable centre will leave for the town.”

Commencement of the construction was celebrated with a Golden Hammer ceremony last month. 

The event was attended by CBC leader and councillor Michael Jones, councillor Atif Nawaz, and CBC chief executive Ian Duke.  

The Innovation Centre is a part of the town’s 2022-2037 recovery plan, which received approval from the CBC Planning Committee. 

The 2,500m² centre will feature five workshop rooms, two offices, a flexible working space, and a café.  

It is set to receive £8.4m ($10.64m) in funding from the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership. 

Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership chief executive Tony Middleton said: “Coast to Capital has been delighted to support such a significant project that will deliver growth of innovation-led businesses in Crawley.  

“Crawley Borough Council is to be commended for the investment it has made in creating what will be a hugely important facility creating new jobs and products.” 

Earlier this month, Morgan Sindall further expanded its collaboration with the University of Oxford in the UK to construct the Institute for Global Health building.
