Customer Innovation Centre



The centre will showcase how Johnson Matthey applies cutting edge science to create innovative, sustainable solutions to its customers’ complex problems. The preferred site for this new centre is at Johnson Matthey’s Sonning Common facility, near Reading, which is the base of its corporate science and technology centre. It is expected that the building will be an innovative and flexible space where individual visitors and small or large groups can be accommodated in an integrated experience. The site is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and as such will need careful design and presentation for planning.

At the first phase, Expressions of Interest are invited from innovative, multi-disciplinary design teams. It is intended that a shortlist of four design teams will be selected to prepare initial concept design proposals.
