Atelier – sm are currently developing designs to significantly add to the existing education and business development facilities at CEME.

A new 20,000 sq.ft micro business accelerator building (phase 1) is to form a linking two storey office facility connecting existing accommodation. A new hotel facility for 110 bedrooms is to sit over this link ( phase 2) with further extension to the existing conference facilities to follow (phase 3), incorporating a 350 seat auditorium and additional meeting spaces.

The designs developed to date allow for the extension of the existing two storey ‘circulation street’ to be taken to a natural conclusion – forming a new Centre Entrance, affording better connectivity to the distinct facilities accommodated on the site.

Design development works are on-going, with an anticipated commencement on site of phase 1 works in the third quarter of the year.
