Daedalus Enterprise Zone was designated as one of 111 initial enterprise zones around the UK by Central Government. The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) owned most of the land and ran a programme for the regeneration of Daedalus along with the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and Partnership for Urban South Hampshire (PUSH). Fareham Borough Council (FBC) took ownership from the HCA that which rested within the district of FBC.
In 2014/15 Fareham Borough Council constructed an Innovation Centre for new businesses, with Oxford Innovation assistance to provide business support services, enabling nurture and development. Due to the success of that building, a business case supported the construction of a second phase extension.
The new extension consisted of the construction of a two and three-storey steel frame with composite panels and glazing to match the existing building with associated external hard and soft landscaping, providing a range of office and workshop spaces for local businesses as well as additional space within the Enterprise Zone.
