Construction on the £9.5m building, designed by Bond Bryan Architects, will commence in autumn 2019 and the Innovation Centre will be ready to welcome its first tenants in summer 2021.

Once completed, the new centre is expected to support around 270 jobs and will generate a further £120m of additional gross value added to the local economy over the next decade.

William Cornall, Director of Regeneration and Place at Maidstone Borough Council, said: “The Innovation Centre is integral to our growth ambitions, and it builds upon the Government’s support for the North Kent Enterprise Zone, which includes the Kent Medical Campus as a key location for employment growth that will deliver 4,000 jobs for Maidstone.”
