We are planning some exciting enhancements to our innovation hub, enabling us to provide one of the most collaborative and creative environments in Liverpool.

The Sensor City Board has agreed to progress plans to transform the Sensor City building and its internal facilities, which would secure our long-term future and enable us to provide rapid prototyping consultancy, business support and collaborative spaces for years to come.

In order to undertake this major building upgrade work, the Sensor City building will be temporarily closed from 5pm on 23rd December 2020, with the aim to re-open in Summer/Autumn 2021.

During this time, the Sensor City team are looking forward to working over at Liverpool Science Park (LSP), alongside many of our customers, so we will be on hand as normal to assist with any business support, lab consultancy or marketing projects that may arise.

We understand that the onsite prototyping labs and technical expertise available at Sensor City are very important to our customers, and although there won’t be any access to Sensor City’s labs while the major building works are being undertaken, we will still be able to undertake a range of technical consultancy along with digital design and small prototyping projects. We will assess all lab requests individually and can utilise our extensive network of industry and academic contacts to assist with larger commissions.

Sensor City customers will also be able to book meeting and event space within Liverpool Science Park, as there are a range of fantastic spaces within LSP which can accommodate similar set-ups to that at Sensor City, and we will still be able to source AV equipment and catering as required.

The Sensor City team will continue to share details of any upcoming business support initiatives, regional funding opportunities and sector specific events which arise, and will also be able to facilitate the same level of academic/industry engagement as currently delivered.

Additionally, thanks to our closer relationship with LSP, access to a larger creative, digital and health tech community will be available, with the opportunity for Sensor City customers to meet and collaborate with more of the region’s finest STEM businesses.

2020 has highlighted the world’s growing reliance on technology, innovative solutions and digital communications, and we hope that our transformational building plans will help facilitate the ongoing development and growth of these sectors, through the dynamic work our customers and in-house engineers will be involved with.

Additionally, heightened community spirit has been vitally important this year, and with increased collaborative space in the building, the proposed building upgrades will enable us to foster better relationships and encourage a more joined-up approach, across our regional networks and beyond.

Many thanks in advance for your understanding during this transitional period, and we look forward to sharing more details about the exciting new chapter for Sensor City in 2021.
