Commercial Sector Construction – February 2023

Dear Reader

A commercial building project served as the impetus for the founding of Horizon Construction in 1999. Now, 24 years later, we have been entrusted with a variety of projects in this sector with a combined value in excess of £100m.

I believe our emphasis on service quality is distinctive and refreshing for our clients. Through our expertise and approach to building strong, transparent and collaborative relationships, our clients’ corporate identities and strategic goals have been enriched through our unwavering commitment to delivering a high-quality and supportive service.

This sector-specific publication highlights our current and recent projects, with particular demand for industrial units and mixed-use facilities. Please get in touch, or explore our website and social media channels, for more information.

Kind regards


Phil Holding

Mixed-use business centre in Great Dunmow, Essex

The construction of a £2.8m mixed-use business centre in Great Dunmow involves a bespoke design to accommodate the client’s requirement for a versatile facility. New utility services to the site have required extensive planning with service and infrastructure providers.

Our team is working with the project managers at Real8 Group, architectural team at Inkpen Downie and the structural engineers at WA Consulting Engineers.

Industrial units in Harold Wood, London

Our team delivered a number of industrial units of varying sizes in separate phases. Construction involved traditional foundations, steel frames with twin skins, composite cladding and power floated concrete floors. The project management was provided by the client and the architectural team was Arcady Architects. For more information, click here.


"One of the principal attractions of Horizon Construction’s modus operandi is the transparency of the financial aspect. Right from the onset, through to the payment of contractors and suppliers, it is possible to see exactly where one's money is being spent and variations, both positive and negative, are easy to identify and understand. We have built up an extremely good relationship with all members of the team."
