Construction of the Sovereign Harbour Innovation Park has started in Eastbourne with site clearance and piling works.

The 5.5 acre business park is being created by economic development company Sea Change Sussex, with support from Eastbourne Borough Council and East Sussex County Council.

IMG_8801 The construction is being carried out by Buckingham Group Contracting, a £300 million turnover, family/owner-managed building company.

The project will bring economic life to a disused site in prestigious Sovereign Harbour, 2.5 miles east of Eastbourne town centre, by attracting expanding businesses and providing jobs.

The first development on the Park will be Pacific House (shown below) – a 2,300m² contemporary business centre.

Pacific House will be able to accommodate up to 70 firms as a mix of small or medium sized businesses or one or two large companies. These occupiers could be start-ups, established local firms, companies from outside the area or a combination of these.

The units available range from 58m² to the entire building, which will be able to accommodate up to 300 employees.

Pacific-House-artists-impression2 Pacific House is scheduled to be completed next summer, 2015. Sea Change and its agents are taking letting enquiries now, with several firms already expressing interest.

The rest of the Innovation Park offers a range of potential sites for further commercial properties to be developed which could bring total development up to 10,000m² including Pacific House.
