HM Revenue & Customs, Worthing

This project was for the proposed redevelopment of the existing Inland Revenue site at Durrington Bridge House, Barrington Road, Worthing, West Sussex for a planned mixed-use development of houses, flats, retirement apartment and a new care home. Historically the site comprised part of an open field, brick works before being redeveloped for office use with a western part of the site remaining undeveloped. The site is bound by a railway line, residential housing, commercial buildings and associated car park.
