Construction of Warrington Business Incubator
Warrington Borough Council is building an £8.5 million business incubator in the centre of the town.
The new 50,000sq ft. building will occupy the site of the former Dallam Centre in Dallam Lane. The site sits at the heart of Warrington Borough Council’s ambitious £190 million Stadium Quarter project.
The new Business Incubator will provide a contemporary, high-quality workplace specifically aimed at providing prestigious accommodation for start-up businesses.
The five storey state-of-the-art building will feature a café at ground floor level and offices and research and development facilities on the upper floors. Its contemporary look will be enhanced by stone and glass elevations and feature a double-height glazed entrance lobby.

Funding has come from a £1.7 million European Regional Development Fund grant and £6.7 million investment from Warrington Borough Council’s capital programme.

It is expected that the facility will in itself create 11 new jobs and approximately the same number during the construction period. When the facility is operational in Summer, it could house up to 100 small businesses.

The Stadium Quarter project was announced by Warrington Borough Council in March 2013. The scheme will connect the bus interchange with the Warrington Wolves’ Halliwell Jones Stadium and create a new, vibrant mixed-use development comprising educational, business, leisure and housing uses.

A phased programme of development over the next decade will create up to 1,000 construction jobs and nearly 4000 new permanent jobs when fully completed in 2024.
