Dockside Development at Shoreham Port
14th March 2019
The Lady Bee Enterprise Centre at Shoreham Port is set to open this spring and work on Hove Enterprise Centre (HEC) has already begun.
MacConvilles is proud to be assisting on the two sites, lending our expertise to Shoreham Port, providing offering strategic advice on maximising property assets and longer-term plans for development.
MacConvilles have been a part of the project team from the outset, providing initial feasibility studies, cost planning and procurement advice, as well as leading the tender process. Always keen to see a job through from the very beginning to the very end, we are now undertaking post-contract duties such as cost reporting, contract administration, valuations and overarching project management roles.
The port is keen to maintain an eco-friendly status, with features such as PV panels to power vital facilities, electric car charging points, bicycle racks and recycling storage facilities on-site. They have also installed a number of water-saving measures.
Sustainability has remained central in the designing and construction of these units. From selecting materials to minimise their travel distance to site from recognised sustainable sources to creating designs with the intention of capturing the natural light and for flexibility in unit configuration.
Tim Hague, Director of Property and Development at Shoreham Port commented: “I am happy to report that construction is going smoothly at our Lady Bee Enterprise Centre development. With solar panels and windows fitted this month, the site is really beginning to come together”.
It’s anchors’ away with work now commencing on the HEC and with the project team on board it is likely to be plain sailing from here on.
