Expansion of the Folkestone College campus is now complete, following the successful handover of the site in October 2022.
This new flagship building, designed by Lee Evans Partnership for East Kent College Group (EKCG), provides exciting state-of-the-art facilities and increases the college’s presence within the town. Situated to the front of the existing campus and built using an insitu concrete frame structure, the building features extensive brickwork designed to match the surrounding red-brick Victorian buildings.
The new facility has been successfully integrated with other college buildings on site via a new pedestrian linkway. The original chapel has been left intact and becomes part of the new building, providing an atmospheric and beautiful creative performance space.
Now open, the building provides EKCG with excellent modern teaching environments, enabling them to deliver high-quality further education to over 1,000 full- and part-time students.
