Contract Award - Bennet Memorial Diocesan School
We are delighted to have been awarded the contract to deliver works at Bennnet Diocesan School in Tunbridge Wells. Awarded by KCC, the project will provide a FE Basic Need Expansion by 2 form of entry. The works involve the erection of new 2 storey teaching block, extension to Ann Scott building, extension to catering/kitchen area and the provision of additional 22 car parking spaces.
The existing school consists of several stand alone buildings of 1, 2 and 3 storeys built at various times since it opened in

are of a variety of architectural styles and quality but the majority share a common theme of at least part brickwork
The design for the new school was provided by Bond Bryan Architects and our works on site will include:
-The construction of a 2-storey new build. This will provide a range of
general and ICT teaching spaces, a flexible hall space and staff facilities required to accommodate the proposed 2
Form Entry expansion (equivalent to 300 additional students).
-Minor alterations and extensions to two of the existing buildings in order to improve science facilities and provide
additional capacity in the kitchen/servery.
-Improvements to the bus drop off area to reduce disruption/congestion at key drop off/pick up times.
-Improvements to the existing pedestrian pathways/new pedestrian link across the site in order to better separate
pupil and vehicle movements.
-Provision of 22 additional car parking spaces to accommodate the planned new staffing requirements for the
