Hawes Building Ltd, contractors covering East Sussex and the South East for both domestic and commercial new builds and renovations, celebrated the opening of their new offices in Polegate High Street with an event to which their customers and contacts were invited. 

Guests were given a tour of the building, which was previously a bank, including being able to view the high-security vault and safe where money and other items of value were stored.  Attendees included architects, structural engineers, project managers, interior designers and material suppliers. 

hawes2Hawes is another Sussex success story, the new premises being required to house an expanding team as well as providing meeting and storage facilities.  Having only started just over three years ago, recent projects have included work at the Shepham Wind Farm, on high-end executive houses near Uckfield and in London, refurbishment works at Crawley Hospital and at a school in Shoreham plus structural work at a supermarket in Rye, 

Hawes Building Ltd is owned and managed by Bruce and Sarra Hawes, both of whom previously worked for Llewellyn’s in Eastbourne, indeed that is where they met.  Bruce had worked his way up to Contracts Manager and Sarra was the company’s first female site managers at a young age.  Said Sarra: ‘We are really pleased to take the opportunity of our expansion to have a presence on the high street where customers and potential clients can pop in and to raise awareness of Hawes.’

hawes3Hawes also used the occasion of the opening event, with cutting the ribbon performed by Stephen Lloyd, to announce the formation of a new division, Hawes Diamond Drilling.  With significant experience in concrete cutting, sawing and drilling, Bruce and Sarra have formed a new specialist arm to offer this service across the South East and into the London area.

Visitors are very welcome to pop into the new Hawes Offices at 41 High Street in Polegate with easy access from the A27 and A22 and parking outside.  Alternatively, further information can be found at either www.hawesbuilding.co.uk / www.hawesdiamonddrilling.co.uk or by calling 01323 483085.
