Kings Hill’s positive assessment
A company that has just won an award for customer service in the Kent Excellence in Business Awards (KEiBA) is moving to Kings Hill, having given a positive assessment of its own to the quality environment on the business park.
The British Assessment Bureau (BAB) is taking 3,165 sq ft in 30 Tower View and 15 of its staff, currently based in Sevenoaks, will be moving into the new offices next week (18 July).
BAB certifies all sizes of organisation to popular ISO (International Standards Organisation) management standards (like ISO 9001) - which are recognised worldwide. It also provides associated training and creates bespoke assessment schemes tailored to specific requirements.
BAB plans to recruit a further 15 staff over the next three years in the local area.
“We are totally focused on client service and it is a critical element to ensure that our people have the best possible working environment in order to maintain a happy and motivated team,” said David Fenn, chief executive of BAB.
“One of the main attractions of Kings Hill is the high specification of the office space and the attractive, landscaped environment. There is plenty of free parking for our people and visitors, and the shops, bars and restaurants are a short, pleasant stroll away. We are very much looking forward to moving into our new offices.”
As well as scooping an award in the Kent Excellence in Business Awards the company has also entered The Customer Focus Award category in the Orange 2011 National Business Awards.
Andrew Blevins, managing director of Kings Hill developer Liberty Property Trust UK Ltd said: “We are delighted to welcome a new tenant to the park, especially one which is engaged in promoting standards, which we take as an endorsement of Kings Hill.
“We have also recently signed leases on a further 20,000 sq ft of office space following Teligent Telecom and ADT Fire & Security both extending their tenure here, all of which is very encouraging.”
The landlord was represented by Altus Edwin-Hill, Knight Frank and Hanover Green. The tenant represented itself.
