Welcome to the Daventry iCon – a landmark centre which encourages business innovation in sustainable construction offering first class facilities in the East Midlands.
The Northamptonshire market town of Daventry was chosen to be the home of the new multi-million pound national centre of excellence for businesses working in innovative green technologies. The iCon building includes 55 business units, alongside a conference centre for up to 300 people, exhibition space and a café. Specialist support will be available to all tenants, as well as accommodating the Sustainable Construction Innovation Network (iNet) which offers support to fledgling ventures.
Show units are now available to view at the under construction building in Daventry, Northamptonshire, which will be open for business in April 2011. Specialising in green technologies and sustainable construction, the iCon offers office accommodation and a supportive environment for firms at the forefront of the low carbon economy.
Europe’s top architects were challenged to create an iconic building with impeccable environmental credentials. The iCon has already been the recipient of two design awards, collecting a Green Apple Award for Architecture and the Built Environment in June 2010, as well as a Milton Keynes South Midlands Excellence Award in December 2010.
Leading regional ensemble Fiori Musicali will be performing Vivaldi's The Four Seasons on 21 May 2011 as part of a week of cultural and community events to celebrate the opening of the iCon. This event also marks the opening of Fiori's project Mad About The Seasons which forms part of Igniting Ambition – the East Midlands’ response to the Cultural Olympiad.
Inspired by Vivaldi's music and the poetry of John Clare, Mad About The Seasons aims to connect communities in a county-wide participatory and performance project which fuses music, visual image and poetry to reflect on the changing seasons, and to capture and celebrate what it means to live in rural Northamptonshire in 2011.
Fiori Musicali are one of the UK’s principal providers of baroque and classical music outside London.
