Kents Hill Secondary and SEN Schools are nearing completion on site. These steel-framed schools are part of the £27 million campus that includes the neighbouring primary school, also designed by AKS Ward and its CORDE joint venture partners adp and KJ Tait. The images highlight the successes of the project, such as the energy efficient design, multiple outdoor sports facilities as well as a unique link-bridge offering level access to the main school.
It has been a varied and challenging project with a fast-paced construction programme: all three schools and the sports hall were constructed simultaneously and in a sequence different from the original design intent. Critical to the realisation of the schemes was close collaboration among CORDE, client and contracting partners, as well as pooling knowledge and resource across AKS Ward offices in London, Oxford and Birmingham.
We are proud to have been a part of this framework and offer our best wishes to staff and pupils in their new home due for completion in December 2017.
