Value £700,000
Location Southampton
Completed July 2018

A fit-out design and build project involving the conversion of an existing office building into a new mixed-use conference centre and exhibition space together with office space and associated external works & drainage. 

Finished to a high quality the Conference Centre offers a flexible configuration that can cater for large and smaller events to suit end-user requirements. At most the Centre can be configured as a two-hundred seat conference facility.

With all the latest conferencing technology including programmable lighting, high bandwidth hard-wired and WiFi internet access, built-in projectors and screens and a wireless ClickShare system enabling delegates to share materials quickly and easily.

The project included the remodelling and re-arrangement of the car parking and external works around the existing building to provide an increase of parking spaces and a new forty-space visitors car park nearby. 

A new glazed canopy was added to the building to ensure an inviting entrance to the new facilities.


"Enabling people to come together to share ideas and experiences is a critical part of our innovation ecosystem here at Southampton Science Park. Whilst we have always offered meeting facilities, we have long wished to provide an inspiring conference and exhibition facility which can enable this to happen at scale. Axis delivers this. Bright, welcoming and easily accessible, Axis is already helping us to attract more visitors from across the region and beyond for engaging, empowering events and the feedback that we’ve had from conference organisers and delegates to date is extremely positive". Peter Birkett, Chief Executive Officer, Southampton Science Park
