Located between Sevenoaks and Maidstone in Kent, the new Rolex building is a 51000 ft² modern development constructed on the site of the former RAF West Malling airfield.
A £18m project, it accommodates the UK distribution, servicing and administration operations of Rolex Watch Company Limited.
Security and sustainability are central to any Rolex building due to the nature of the company’s operations. The design of the main building incorporates an efficient energy concept, aiming at reducing the need for plant and building fabric maintenance to a practical minimum.
A seven metre wide water filled moat surrounds the building, providing security, as well as storage for the sprinkler tank. It also cools the air, which passes across the surface of the moat prior to entering the building.
