We are a practice of consulting engineers offering a bespoke design service in Environmental and Public Health Engineering encompassing clean water services and above and below ground foul and surface water drainage.
Location – Hythe
I (Julian) had been working in London for blue chip international consulting engineering practices and commuting daily from Hythe for 12 years. A change in circumstances allowed me to start working from my home office in Hythe in 2009.
Advantages of Hythe
The ability to jump on a high speed train at Folkestone West allows me to be in Central London in less than an hour. Links to Kings Cross, Euston and Paddington stations mean that I can be anywhere in the country in just a few hours – quicker, safer and more relaxing than driving. Most of my work is within London or beyond such as Manchester, Edinburgh, Looe in Cornwall, Bristol, Cardiff, Worcester as well as Kent.
We have not benefitted from any funding in the area.
Support / Networking
PURA Design Ltd is a member of the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce and the Kent Construction Focus Group which has provided introductions to other businesses in the construction sector.
Advice for start-ups
I can’t give advice for retail businesses but for businesses working from home Hythe is the ideal location with its fast rail connections to London and Europe.
