Project Description

Engine Shed is an Enterprise Hub led by the University of Bristol. It’s aim is to drive inward investment, create jobs and support the growth of businesses to drive inclusive growth and innovation for the West of England region.

Set in Brunel’s original train station, a Grade I listed building built in 1841 and since given a £1.7 million transformation, Engine Shed’s prime location next to Bristol Temple Meads makes it one of the world’s most connected enterprise hubs.

The building is home to a range of high-tech and creative businesses including world-leading tech incubator, SETsquared Bristol, higher education creative provider, Boomsatsuma and info hub, TechSPARK.

It is also home to a membership business lounge, Brunel’s Boardroom meeting suite, several events spaces and Boxworks, 20 shipping containers custom designed as workspaces located next to Engine Shed.

Looking ahead, Engine Shed will be a key component in the University of Bristol’s ambitious plans for the Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus.
