FM Conway relocates headquarters

Highways Reporters

FM Conway has relocated its head office to Sevenoaks in Kent.

The firm has been based in Dartford, Kent since 2000, with its head office, workshops and a large materials recycling facility based at Rochester Way. The move will see 250 employees moving to the new headquarters in Sevenoaks, including all of the company’s support staff as well as its senior management team.

The three-storey office block on the Vestry Industrial Estate – formerly called Becket House – is one of Sevenoaks’ key office developments. FM Conway purchased the 40,000 square foot building in March last year and has since carried out an extensive refurbishment to offer state-of-the-art office facilities, including new enhanced thermal performance SAPA aluminium window and door frames, which have transformed the exterior of the building.

FM Conway holds long-term highway maintenance contracts with around half of London’s boroughs, carrying out vital construction works for the road network as well as maintaining many of the capital’s parks, stadiums, venues and communities.

The company’s former head office in Dartford will be converted to provide an expanded logistics hub for the business, alongside the materials recycling and crusher facilities already located at the site.

FM Conway’s chief executive officer, Michael Conway, said: “We have experienced phenomenal growth in recent years, with turnover rising by more than 40% in 2015.  Thanks to this move, we now have a headquarters that reflects the scale and ambition of the company as we look to continue our success in the years to come.

“Our people are at the heart of our business and we want to make sure they have the best working environment possible. The new office at Sevenoaks provides a modern, high-quality space that will ensure that our employees can continue to provide the best possible support for our colleagues, partners and customers.”
