Brain injury support firm moves to Bexhill’s High Weald House as new base for growth

Posted on: October 22, 2020

Established Sussex business Brain Injury Services Ltd has taken offices on the ground floor of our new High Weald House building on the Bexhill Enterprise Park. Its move is designed to give the company more professional, contemporary premises from which it can grow across the south-east.

 

Brain Injury Services was set up in 1999. Its 18-strong team support people affected by brain injuries across Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, London, Kent and Essex – helping them maintain as much independence as possible. The company offers recruitment, personnel, equipment ordering, budget management and payroll services and delivers initial needs assessments Europe-wide.

Brain Injury Services was founded by Don Young who, having owned the business for 21 years, is retiring on 1 November. The company has new owners in Cardiff-based Stokes Case Management – for which it will provide an established south-east England presence.

The firm has been based in Battle since its inception, where its team was scattered across three offices which were no longer fit for purpose.

Jenny Mitchell, Brain Injury Services’ Director of Operations, explains:

“We needed to consolidate in one single location and looked at local options. High Weald House stood out as the best bet for us – brand new, high-spec offices with lots of space and a highly professional, contemporary feel. The building is disability friendly – which is clearly vital given the nature of our business – and the shared facilities like lifts, meetings rooms and breakout areas are impressive.

“Our new offices are actually costing us no more than our old ones and the process of agreeing the lease was extremely simple.  Sea Change Sussex was highly accommodating of our needs. This is definitely the right base from which we can look forward to growing the business under new ownership.”

High Weald House details: Like Glovers House – the first offices on the Enterprise Park – High Weald House has timber external cladding above a brick base to blend with its countryside setting. Internally, it has a light-filled atrium and incorporates meeting areas, tea points and wide communal corridors that support social distancing.

It has ample parking and is an energy-efficient building – with an EPC rating of A(21) – making the most of daylight and natural ventilation.

Bexhill Enterprise Park background:  In addition to High Weald House, serviced plots on the Bexhill Enterprise Park are available which can accommodate up to 220,000 sq ft of business premises. You can buy these plots to develop your own properties or commission us to develop schemes to your specification.

The Bexhill Enterprise Park is part of a programme outlined in the Rother Local Plan to create a major new business and residential community to the north-east of Bexhill. This is designed to provide long-term jobs and homes to accommodate population expansion in the Hastings and Bexhill area.
