carriage works

The Swindon Carriage Works, a historic industrial building once at the forefront of Victorian industrial innovation, will be the home of our Creative Hub workshops where our partners can work together on today’s industrial innovation.

Ideally placed for national and international connectivity for businesses working with iCAST, Swindon is close to the lab facilities in Bath and Oxford and is at the heart of a region with a long-term strategic commitment to support business growth in this sector.
