REDHS News – 1 November 2022

Site Update

The impact to our site was extensive, with flood water unfortunately inundating all areas of the facility.

Due to the severity of the flood damage, our entire site requires refurbishment and remediation works to bring the site back to operational capacity, which will take some time.  

Whilst the site rebuild is completed, temporary buildings have been erected on site to act as our Operations Centre, and will house our Executive team and key operational staff to keep our connection and base in the Rochester community.
