Following our handover to Main Contractor, Baxall Construction in July 2020, March 2021 sees Kent County Council take possession of the new community Hub in Southborough.
On the site of the former town council offices and the Royal Victoria Hall, Southborough Hub is a joint venture between Southborough Town Council, Kent County Council and the NHS who have contributed a grant towards the project of £4.2m for the new medical centre at the Hub.
This was an interesting and rewarding project to be part of with several factors to be considerate of in our design. Internally key features include the three large 10m high glulam portal frames to the theatre. The glulam posts and beams forming the portal frames were connected using 3.5 tonnes of steel flitch and base plates all pre-drilled off site to exacting precision enabling our site crews to effortlessly construct the portal frames on site.
We hope the community of Tunbridge Wells will enjoy the many facilities that the Hub has to offer including the multi-use hall, library and medical centre.
