Oscar Acoustics Unveils Impressive £4 Million Headquarters in Halling

Oscar Acoustics, a family-owned business specializing in building acoustics, has unveiled its new state-of-the-art headquarters in Halling. The impressive £4million Oscar Innovation Centre, located on the site of the former Cemex cement works, has been 40 weeks in the making.

The award-winning centre, designed by Urban and Rural architects and constructed by WW Martin, will serve as the new base for the company’s 30 employees. With 45 years of experience, Oscar Acoustics has become a leader in the industry.

The modern and sleek office structure includes open-plan workspaces, meeting rooms, a welcoming lounge, and a two-story warehouse. The building also serves as a practical showroom, showcasing the firm’s own acoustic products in a real-world setting for clients to experience.

In addition to the main office building, the centre also features a companion building that houses six two-story units dedicated to the company’s innovation facility and expanded warehousing capabilities.

Managing Director Ben Hancock expressed his excitement about the new headquarters, stating, “Having our new premises is a dream come true and something we’ve been working towards for many years. Our goal was not only to build a new headquarters, but also to create a high-quality working environment for our employees, with a focus on their health and welfare.”

The company’s commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship is evident in the design and construction of the new centre. From the use of eco-friendly materials and construction methods to promoting biodiversity in the surrounding area, Oscar Acoustics has made it a priority to minimize their impact on the environment.

The centre also includes bike storage and shower rooms, encouraging employees to cycle to work. And with an impressive array of solar panels, the building is capable of operating entirely on solar power.

Mr. Hancock emphasized the importance of staying local to the area, stating, “Both our business and our family have strong connections with Kent, so it was important we stayed local to the area. Having transformed a previously derelict site, we’re now focused on taking the business to the next level, supplying the architectural community with ground-breaking acoustic products that help create healthier and happier, and more productive, working environments.”

The company’s impressive list of past clients includes well-known establishments such as the Hard Rock and Four Seasons Hotels in London, the University of East Anglia, the Tate Modern, and the Windermere Jetty Museum.

Founded by Ben Hancock’s father, John Hancock, in 1978 under the name Oscar Engineering, the firm has now relocated from West Kingsdown to its new state-of-the-art headquarters in Halling. With the new centre, Oscar Acoustics is poised to continue its success and further innovate in the field of building acoustics.
