Company takes first office in Pacific House – Bourne Rail moves in to accommodate expansion

Posted on: September 22, 2015

The first office within Pacific House, the new development on Eastbourne’s Sovereign Harbour Innovation Park, has been let – to transport engineering company Bourne Rail.  

Bourne Rail workforce

Bourne Rail provides civil engineering services to the rail industry, handling projects such as installing and upgrading signalling systems and high voltage cables. The firm is just starting its third year of operation and has grown rapidly, expanding its workforce from 12 to 30 in the last year. It has taken an office on the ground floor of Pacific House.

Tim Clifford, owner of Bourne Rail, explains: “We had a small office in Eastbourne town centre but we need more space and a more professional working environment where we can meet our clients. Pacific House is designed really well – contemporary, light, full of modern features and well laid-out with plenty of parking. It’s the perfect place to help me take my business to the next level.”

Pacific House is a three-floor business centre which was completed in late July. With offices available from 627 sq ft upwards, it is suitable for small, medium and large companies.

There are 10 small suites remaining on the ground floor (from 627 to 952 sq ft), six medium-sized offices on the first floor (1,258 – 1,897 sq ft) and two large offices on the second floor (4,402 & 4,412 sq ft). These could be combined or sub-divided to suit occupiers’ needs.

Pacific House also incorporates a light-filled atrium, break-out areas for informal meetings and a conference room. It is designed to be a low-energy building and has parking spaces for 130 cars.

Developer Sea Change Sussex and its agents are undertaking viewings for other companies and are in discussions with several about letting offices.

In addition to Pacific House, Sovereign Harbour Innovation Park has sites which can accommodate further business premises up to 80,000 sq ft. Companies can commission Sea Change to develop bespoke freehold or leasehold properties for them, or buy serviced sites to develop their own.

The Innovation Park project is designed to provide an economic boost to the area by providing high-quality premises and sites on previously disused land. It aims to help local firms expand and to attract companies to the area, creating jobs.

The Innovation Park is three miles from Eastbourne town centre and accessed from Pacific Drive, off Pevensey Bay Road. It is five minutes’ walk to the cafes, restaurants and boutiques of Sovereign Harbour’s prestigious marina, as well as a retail park including a large supermarket, cinema and gym.

Anyone interested in offices in Pacific House or sites on the Sovereign Harbour Innovation Park should contact one of Sea Change’s agents:
