Industrial & Manufacturing
Our Structural Engineering team visited Springfield Park in Maidstone, Kent where Weston Homes have started work on their Waterhouse Gardens development which will see more than 500 residential units being created over 7 blocks linked via a landscaped podium. The development revolves around a 17-storey tower sited along Royal Engineers’ Road on the upper part of the site which slopes steeply towards the River Medway and Whatman Park beyond. The site was previously occupied by Kent County buildings.
