The Translation & Innovation Hub located in the Imperial College White City Campus in London offers a range of flexible, affordable tenancy options for businesses at every stage of their growth. This brings together entrepreneurs and researchers, facilitating the exchange of ideas and the creation of technological discoveries into products and services.

Tenants have access to research clusters in biomedical engineering, robotics and systems design and engineering, analysis and testing, advice and incubator support plus expert insight.

The I-Hub itself is situated on the first floor and provides fully furnished private offices with fitted wet-lab facilities and co-working spaces are located on the fourth floor. Offices are Grade A and are rated BREEAM Excellent with tenants benefitting from 24/7 on-site security, manned reception, social spaces and a café with outdoor seating.

Swanmac has been instructed to supply and install electric sunscreen roller blinds fitted into a recessed blind box.  This places a headbox into the recess thus making the blind invisible when not in use.  Thanks to the motorised operation, users can open and close the blinds at the touch of a button with pinpoint accuracy to allow them to protect tenants from harmful rays and from becoming too hot or too cold.
