Kent architectural acoustic firm Oscar Acoustics has now reportedly opened its new £4 million headquarters on the site of the former Cemex cement works in Halling in the Medway valley.

The building, built for the 45-year old family firm, was designed by Urban and Rural architects and constructed in 40 weeks by WW Martin, it was reported.

"Having our new premises is a dream come true and something we’ve been working towards for many years," Ben Hancock, the managing director, was quoted as saying.

"The goal wasn’t just about building a new headquarters, but creating a high-quality working environment for our employees, with a focus on their health and welfare."

The new Oscar Innovation Centre consist of a new main office with open-plan workspace, meeting rooms, a welcoming lounge, and a two-storey warehouse.

It also features a showroom where prospective clients can experience Oscar Acoustics' products first-hand.

A focus has been on sustainability and eco-friendly materials and construction methods have been used where possible. The building can also reportedly operate entirely on solar power.
