The new innovation centre stands on the Nar Ouse site to the South of King’s Lynn town centre. The 120 acre site is the largest brownfield regeneration project ever handled in West Norfolk and one of the largest in the East of England.
KLIC is designed to support new and growing businesses in the local community.
The works consisted of the design and construction of a piled four-storey and two-storey, 862m2, steel framed, building combined by a three-storey atrium. 60% of the external fabric is glazed and the remaining 40% is eternit rainscreen cladding together with a feature band of cameleon cladding. The works also included the construction of a new access road and 75 space car park and secure cycle storage which has been value engineered by our in-house technical support team.
The building includes low energy LED lighting to all offices, WCs and meeting rooms.
The office areas, conference rooms and main entrance, foyer are provided with a variable refrigerated flow (VRF) heat pump comfort cooling system. Ceiling mounted fan coil units re-circulate the humidity of the space and are described as a comfort air conditioning system (comfort cooling) utilising ASHP technology.
