After the construction of a new building at their rural Kent location, Benenden called upon Abbey Design to explore options for refurbishment of their disused science buildings. We delivered several sketch schemes to take the building back to a number of general teaching classrooms and an IT management suite. We provided a range of options for the development, including room planning/furniture layouts for classrooms and ancillary spaces.
A key component of this project was the relocation of the school’s site servers that had previously been temporarily housed elsewhere. This required both detailed planning and logistical co-ordination.
