Major milestone in the creation of a new landmark office
Released: Monday, 13 July 2020
Worthing leaders have welcomed a major milestone in the creation of a new landmark office which will soon be home to 900 full-time government employees.
Cllr Daniel Humphreys, Leader of Worthing Borough Council, joined representatives of HMRC and developers for the topping out ceremony at Teville Gate House.
Together they laid the last paving slab on the roof of the five-storey development in Railway Approach.
Construction was delayed for a month due to lockdown but teams are back on site with social distancing measures in place. This means the development is due to be completed early next year ahead of HMRC moving in.
Councillor Daniel Humphreys, Leader, Worthing Borough Council, said:
“It is fantastic to see the project on course to bring huge benefits to Worthing and we want to congratulate the team for their hard work to make this possible. Teville Gate House will boost local business and support our ongoing work to improve the vitality of the borough and to make the station a more welcoming approach into Worthing.”
Alan Tume, HMRC Regional Implementation Lead for London and the South East, said:
“We are pleased to be recognising this milestone in the construction of our new specialist site, despite the challenges over recent months. We have worked with our partners to ensure work continues in the safest way possible to deliver what will be a fantastic new building for our people.
“Once complete, we will bring our team into Teville Gate House, which will provide colleagues with modern, flexible and collaborative working environments.”
