Based at the Preston Barracks regeneration site in Brighton & Hove, FIELD is a hub for start-ups that design and make physical products. FIELD aims to empower entrepreneurial designers and engineers, and to cultivate a vibrant community which thrives on the free exchange of ideas Following an open call for applications, several businesses successfully secured rent free space at FIELD.

FIELD’s purpose is to inform a clear vision of what Brighton & Hove’s diverse entrepreneurial community needs from a potential permanent facility, which is part of the proposed redevelopment of Preston Barracks. Overall we have two key aims, which are:

  1. To empower entrepreneurial makers, inventors, engineers and product designers with the use of a diverse workspace
  2. To unite like-minded people, organisations and businesses to create a community that thrives on the free exchange of ideas between creative innovators and inventors

FIELD is funded by Coast to Capital LEP and is an initiative by U+I Plc.
