Spring 2022

​The aim of the project is to convert an existing, disused educational facility and Grade-II listed building in Newhaven into a multi-purpose site, comprising:

  • 1,630 sqm of educational/training and business support space for the maritime sector;
  • 1,595 sqm of commercial office space; and
  • 1,500 sqm of ancillary space.

The completed development will enable a Maritime and Sustainable Technology Hub to be established in Newhaven to support the maritime sector across Sussex. The Hub will actively seek to encourage those industries involved in the design, construction, maintenance and operation of environmental, engineering and maritime products and services (clean, green and marine technologies) to invest in Newhaven.

The remaining components of the building will be used to re-house public sector workers into a customer-facing shared business centre; and provide additional, modern offices for the town’s businesses and to new businesses looking to locate into Newhaven.
