This is an important site in the heart of Tunbridge Wells that has been derelict for some years. The new development will reinvigorate and restore the town centre providing multiple amenities to the local people. The redevelopment will include much needed residential, commercial, and retail and leisure facilities.
The principal challenge is in developing a considerable new structure above a busy railway. A challenge which DCL is addressing through a complex combination of reinforced concrete, steel and transfer slabs. DCL are working closely with Network Rail and other stakeholders to assure the highest level of compliance with health and safety legislation.
