Latest school project in Sevenoaks following work at Knole Academy, Trinity Academy and Weald of Kent Grammar School
Willmott Dixon has been appointed by Kent County Council to build a three-storey satellite facility for Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys in Sevenoaks.
The work to extend the school was procured through the Procurement Hub Major Projects framework and will also see refurbishment work undertaken at the nearby Weald of Kent Grammar School as part of the same contract to create a mezzanine level and new teaching areas.
Adam Worrall, director at Willmott Dixon in London & South commented:
“Having worked in collaboration with Kent County Council for many years, we are delighted to be working with them once more to deliver the much-needed expansion for the school. Designed by Bond Bryan Architects, the extension will allow the school to continue to provide an outstanding pupil experience.”
Clare Moore, Client Relationship Manager, Procurement Hub said
“It has been a pleasure to be working alongside Willmott Dixon and Kent County Council on the expansion of Tunbridge Wells Grammar School. We are looking forward to seeing the completed project!”
This is the latest in a series of projects in Sevenoaks for Willmott Dixon. In 2017, the business completed an extensive expansion at the Weald of Kent Grammar School, which followed its role building Trinity Free School. The company had also previously delivered an extension at Knole Academy.
Follows the appointment in August to build a Passivhaus leisure centre for Spelthorne Borough Council
The extension and refurbishment project will enable the school to offer improved specialist facilities to 127 pupils, aged between four and 19 years old
The partnership will see the two firms collaborate, allowing them to deliver a wider range of healthcare construction projects than they could do individually
Our team took top honours at the 2021 Construction Manager of the Year Awards, which recognises the nation’s best project managers.
The intricate refurbishment will include reshaping the seating and stage to allow live performances with improved sightlines, while original features including the ziggurat ceiling and the building’s frontage will be restored to their former glory.
Willmott Dixon’s Construction and Interiors businesses will work in partnership with a range of charities, social enterprises and community groups and conservationists.
