Incubator kick starts high-tech enterprise centre

AHMM teamed up with facade manufacturer Kawneer to build the £2.5m ‘Incubator’ on an old airfield in Huntingdonshire. Once a Google search has reassured you that Huntingdonshire does exist outside Robin Hood tales, you might go with the fact it’s the first building of a 20 year project to convert the region into a high tech enterprise centre with 5000 homes, new transport links and community facilities. And, with over 280ha of green space, there’ll be plenty of room for the Merry Men.
