Bouverie House Business Centre opens its doors

A building which was previously vacant for more than a decade has been brought to life thanks to the support of the Folkestone Community Works programme.

Bouverie House Business Centre, which sits directly next to Folkestone bus station, was officially opened on 4 August and provides office suites and meeting rooms for small and medium-sized enterprises.

A six-figure sum – including a £420,000 Folkestone Community Works grant, part-funded by the European Structural and Investment Funds 2014-20 and managed by F&HDC – has been spent on refitting the building sustainably.

It now has over 6,000 sq ft of office space within 21 self-contained units, meeting rooms, an informal breakout area, virtual offices and co-working space – all of which are available for rental on short, flexible terms.

Bouverie House Business Centre is being managed by East Kent Spatial Development Company, which has successfully led regeneration developments in other parts of the county. Visit for more details.

An open day is being held on Wednesday 18 August between 10am and 3pm for those interested in looking at the new office space. Call 07591 598192 to book your place.
