Work to redevelop Hereford's Shell Store is now complete, transforming the historic building into a flagship business incubation and innovation centre.

The £7.3 million renovation of the derelict building on Skylon Park, Hereford Enterprise Zone, Rotherwas, delivers more than 2,000 sq metres of business space to support new and growing enterprises to set up and expand, alongside facilities for development and innovation, office and conference space.

The Shell Store provides employment space for up to 25 dynamic and innovative businesses, inspiring economic growth through establishing a hub of business expertise and creating high-skilled jobs of the future.

The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Herefordshire Council and a loan from the Marches LEP's Marches Investment Fund.

The Shell Store, which is not a listed building, was built in the First World War and used as an ordnance site during the Second World War. The redevelopment project has seen much of the commercial space created within the existing building footprint, retaining much of the original factory, including its steel roof structure.

The centre is due to welcome its first tenants in early 2021.
