In February 2017, the Enterprise Hub opened a brand new space: The Taylor Centre. The Centre was the product of many months of work to renovate the basement of Prince Philip House, the Grade I listed home of the Royal Academy of Engineering in central London. What was once a dark and damp storage space was transformed into a modern and professional work space and meeting area for our Members' use.
We now offer a range of meeting rooms, boardrooms, and breakout and social spaces, all fitted with high-end IT equipment for our members to use.
It's in a prestigious central London location where you can work in peace or socialise with other members.
At the Taylor Centre, you can meet the latest inductees to the Hub programmes as well as others who have benefitted from our support in the past. It's a great space to become part of the Hub community.
We are delighted with our new space and believe our supporters and members will be too!
The Taylor Centre was made possible by a generous donation from distinguished inventor and entrepreneur Dr John C Taylor OBE FREng, as well as the support of the late Geoffrey Argent FREng and the Wolfson Foundation, and the kind donation of equipment for the new space from Toshiba UK. The Royal Academy of Engineering thanks these supporters for their invaluable contribution to creating a home for the best of engineering entrepreneurship.

When planning the new Hub, we commissioned a series of original artworks and sculptures to be installed throughout the Taylor Centre. Each piece adds a visual interest to our stunning space, and reflects the creative and innovative thinking we feel the space will encourage.
A lot of changes have taken place in the Hub space over the last eighteen months. The 'before and after' photos below will give you an idea of the transformation that has taken place to create our beautiful new facilities.
