Barton Manor School

Funded by the Department for Education, the scope for this project was to construct a brand new school in the heart of Canterbury, Kent, on the former Chaucer Technology site that boasted state-of-the-art facilities, including a sports block, a multi-use games area, and beautifully landscaped grounds.

Working closely with the main contractor, Kier Construction, through our expertise, we ensured the project ran smoothly from start to finish, complied with building regulations, and adhered to relevant Building Bulletins. Following its successful completion, the school welcomed students in September 2022.
