Technology and acoustic consultant Hewshott International has relocated its EMEA HQ to a new larger, custom designed premises near Colchester, effective this week.
The move, which sees the firm’s EMEA HQ relocate from office space of 700 sq. ft. to mixed use commercial space of 3,000 sq. ft. comes off the back of a period of significant global expansion.
Established in 2002 and with offices in London, Perth, Sydney, Singapore, Hong Kong, Mumbai and Bangalore, Hewshott International is an award winning, and fully independent, technical consultancy and project management practice.
Alongside new office space, meeting rooms and a staff break room, the new facility will include a new tech lab facility following significant client feedback.
Daniel Lee, managing director of Hewshott UK commented: “This is a very exciting time for Hewshott in Europe and we’ve invested heavily in response to increased demand from our customers, as well as looking after our own team. The tech lab space is, we believe, the first consultant led and fully manufacturer and integrator independent space for innovation development and proof of concept work in the UK.
"The 1,000 sq. ft. tech lab will be made available to Hewshott clients for product evaluation and proof on concept testing work as well as being used by the Hewshott team for their own research projects.
Peter Hunt, Group CEO added: “It’s been thrilling to watch Dan grow Hewshott UK and the innovation and leadership he brings to Hewshott globally and the AV market generally is vital to the industry.
"The whole of the Hewshott group is excited with his initiatives, and with clients already booked into his tech lab, we are already looking at expanding this to other offices around the world”.
Adam Harvey, solutions architect, AV and digital media at University of Hertfordshire, said, “An independent Tech Lab space will be hugely beneficial when developing new ideas and trying out new solutions before committing them to the build process.
"Being able to physically test system designs allows us to be absolutely clear on the performance standards of each part of the design. This has been a crucial part of our process when developing our recent new rooms standards prior to going out to market.”
