New European headquarters for TK Maxx and Homesense brands

HardHat has helped TJX Europe secure planning permission for a major new European Headquarters in Watford. We carried out public consultation events between November 2016 and July 2017 for a landmark office development opposite Watford Junction Station.

When fully occupied, the development will provide space for 3,000 employees of the company, which operates the TK Maxx and Homesense brands. The planning committee was unanimous in its resolution to grant approval at the end of July.

New client appointments

HardHat has been appointed by Mayfield Property Group to undertake a consultation in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea in respect of revision to a consented residential redevelopment site. This is in a high profile location adjacent to the former home of rock star Freddie Mercury. HardHat has also started working with Stonegate Homes on two new projects in London and Surrey.
