Sustainability is key to the Discovery Park project

It’s all part of our culture.

From recycling and electric charging for cars to cycle storage and car sharing we’re making choices that are good for the planet.

Cycling to work? No problem.

We have bike sheds available for staff located at the Ramsgate Road side of Innovation House (with showers indoors for those who need them.

Interested in buying a bike? There are two cycle shops in Sandwich – Locks  and Altman.
