an innovation centre to focus on research, development,

book meeting rooms is central to the Mahinga Innovation Centre

This centre will foster collaboration, help to solve
industry problems,and seize opportunities which can
add value to a wide range of businesses located in the park.

and manages the co-working space and meeting room facilities.
