Completed: April 2014
Location: Benenden, Kent
Key Features: Western Red Cedar Cladding
Project Value: £100k
The re-cladding of Benenden School’s purpose-built theatre, comprising a suite of drama teaching classrooms, a 300-seat main auditorium and an additional 100-seat ‘black box’ studio theatre was carried out in April 2014.
The exterior is clad in western red cedar which required renewal due to water ingress to the existing structure. Abbey Design prepared tender and planning documents for the project in readiness for procurement of the works by the school’s project management team.
