We are delighted to announce that due to continued growth, Project Centre has opened its new Kent office in Ashford, with 26 workstations and capacity for over 40 colleagues to be based on site. The location is testament to the work we are doing with the county, unitary and district councils in Kent and the potential opportunities we have identified with other clients here and in the surrounding areas.
We opened the office with fanfare, with Kent County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, David Brazier, speaking about his hopes for the future and the optimism he shares with us for this partnership, before cutting the ribbon alongside Managing Director Keith Hanshaw!
Keith said: “We are delighted to officially open our Ashford office today. Kent is benefitting from a wealth of investment and regeneration which will continue to transform the area into a thriving destination for residents and visitors, and we are proud to be playing our part. We are excited to work with local students, employ local people and support local businesses in the area to maximise potential, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Kent County Council, Medway Council, the district, towns and parish councils and the wider industry.”
Just last year, we were awarded a place on Kent County Council’s Highways, Transportation and Waste Professional Service Framework which is a three-year contract to deliver highways, engineering and transportation projects across the county, and more recently we have been awarded a place on Medway Council’s Framework to provide civil and structural engineering consultancy services.
Our Ashford office will allow us to develop our work with the local community and provide a central hub for clients in the area. We look forward to working with the local councils, businesses and community over the coming years and we are thrilled to be a part of the future development of Kent.
Work has recently completed on our designs for the first phases of the Dartford Town Centre Regeneration, as well as the new Innovation Park Medway in Rochester and we are currently working on the highway design for the Hoo Peninsula infrastructure, the Herne Relief Road and the A28 Chart Road, Ashford, to name but a few.
Expansion in the south will also mean more job opportunities for local people which we are passionate about providing. If you are interested in joining our team, please view our website for current opportunities.
