Directline Structures designed the next stage of development and worked closely with the planning authorities to be in a position to start on this environmentally sensitive site in Hawkhurst, Kent. Phase 2 of development at the Hawkhurst Station Business Park will substantially change the site, with the demolition of a number of dated buildings and the construction of a new steel framed industrial unit.
The former Kent railway station that once echoed to the sounds of thousands of hop-pickers making their annual visit to the county is now on track to provide more new business opportunities for modern-day companies. The new 12,000 sq ft building will be part of the 14 – acre site, where Directline Structures have already built previous steel framed projects.
Rod Hindley of Tunbridge Wells-based Compass Commercial is agent for Hawkhurst Station Business Park and is confident that the development will attract substantial interest in the months ahead. “The park has excellent access to the A21 and is ideally located for companies looking to expand their business in the region serving Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and Maidstone.
“The superior quality of the new buildings will also appeal to companies, especially those who are looking to relocate to the Weald from further afield and are looking for something extra special in terms of a new base,” he added.
