We are delighted to announce that the prestigious Hush Heath Winery project is now open to the general public.
This stunning building stands proud in the Kent countryside and offers a state-of-the-art wine and cider production facility and one of the largest winery visitor centers in England.
Home to their award winning English sparkling wine, Balfour Brut Rosé, the Estate grows its product range substantially boasting an exquisite selection of wines and ciders all produced from fruit grown in thebeautiful vineyards and apple orchards within the 400 acre estate.
BBS was employed by the Hush Heath Estate to carry out an extension to the existing winery and bottle store at their world-renowned facility in Staplehurst, situated in the heart of the Kent countryside.
The extension is constructed from steel frame and concrete blocks. It features a Kingspan insulated roof and wall cladding. A new concrete floor slab was installed with a highly durable new floor finish. New partitions were installed within the extension to the winery to include a kitchen, store room, plant room and male, female and disabled WCs.
Externally, the building features a ground floor 700m2 timber decked terrace area for use by the visitors. In addition to this at first floor level, we have also constructed a 130m2 timber decked terrace area with glass balustrade for un-interrupted views of the Hush Heath Estate and vineyard’s for use by visitors and for events.
There is also a covered external wash-down area and the building features eco-friendly grey water harvesting plant to feed the WC facilities, along with automated winery production area diverter valves with PH sensors to determine hazardous water discharge and divert any potential discharge from the pond to a septic tank.
Finally, the main car park has been extended and new external concrete slab and tarmac pathways installed.
