Having trained as a QS, it was Darrell’s ambition to grow the business that led to the creation of the plant hire division, and subsequently the setting up of a development arm, creating today’s GSE Group.
While the core business remains a focus on civil engineering, these skills have been put to good use by the development division which has seen the emergence of Waterbrook at Ashford as a key site for growth in Kent.
Darrell’s passion for quality and commitment to Kent has also seen the Group acquire the iconic Hythe Imperial Hotel overlooking the English Channel. Bringing the Group’s construction and project management skills to bear has seen the refurbishment of the 92-bed hotel, and the recent acquisition of the Marquis of Granby at Alkham, a boutique hotel.
