Third project delivered for the University of Kent, providing state-of-the-art medical education and research facilities
- Medical school will play an essential part in recruitment and retention of medical professionals in the region.
- This is our third project, delivered sequentially for the University of Kent.
The Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS) is a joint venture between the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University.
The first of its kind in the county and set within a live campus in Canterbury, this new three storey CLT frame building is purpose built and offers a first-class medical education and research environment. Facilities include a 150-seat lecture theatre, seminar rooms, IT suites, social spaces and a GP simulation suite to provide a more patient focused medical education.
Despite challenges that arose from a Covid-19 environment, at the beginning of August this year, we successfully handed over the project on time, to budget and defect free. University of Kent Project Manager Steve Alton commented:
"Through a challenging period of uncertainty the communication across the project team has been exceptional."
Delivering a hat trick for the University of Kent
With the completion of KMMS, this takes the value of our work for the University of Kent to over £40m, following the successful delivery of a new home for the School of Economics in 2019 and the award-winning Sibson Building in 2016. We are proud to have played such an integral role in transforming the campus and learning environment for students at the university.
