Building engineers move to Pacific House to accommodate growth

Posted on July 14, 2020

Building services consultants IWA today moved into new offices in Pacific House.

Established in 1979, IWA designs heating, lighting, water, drainage and other mechanical and electrical systems for property developers, architects and building owners. It has many long-standing clients including Brighton & Hove City Council, Vinci Facilities and Newhaven Port.

The firm has been based in the same premises in Eastbourne town centre for the last 20 years but decided it was time to move to more modern, flexible offices.

The temporarily-quieter COVID-19 market gave director Phil Erridge the chance to step back to review the company’s needs and choose the right new premises.

Phil Erridge explains:

“I looked at various options in Eastbourne and the surrounding area, but Pacific House stood out. The communal feeling that comes from being part of a vibrant business hub is highly appealing. The building is in a great, easily accessible location right by Sovereign Harbour, it has a contemporary feel and the shared facilities including reception and meeting spaces make great sense for a firm like ours.

“It’s also important that Pacific House has flexible expansion space to accommodate our future growth. I’m Eastbourne born and bred – and really happy to have found the right offices to enable me to keep the business in the local area.”

IWA’s staff have been working from home during lockdown but will return to work at the company’s new office in the coming week.
