Planning & Development

Gates of Harlow Redevelopment

DWW Design has been successful in gaining planning permission for a new state of the art car dealership in Harlow for the Gates Group. The present dealership, prominently located at the north-east entrance to Harlow, has been in use since the 1950s but has been under increasing pressure to modernise its facilities to meet the 21st century demands of the manufacturer and the customers.

The new facility, with a ground floor area of c. 2200 sqm and decked parking to the rear of the site, features a prominent curved roof, extensive glazing and makes use of a variety of modern materials, to provide it with a contemporary feel. The overall design is strongly in keeping with its prominent location as gateway site and its position in relation to the Templefields Employment Area.

DWW Design have now completed the detailed architectural and structural engineering design and the scheme is currently out to tender.

Construction is expected to commence in September and DWW will continue to act as project managers through to completion, expected in late 2016.
