Client: Eastbourne College
VINCI Construction UK successfully delivered Project 150, maximising the College’s central site use, aligned with their estate strategy to release land for development.
Project 150 enables the College to take a giant step forward in a very short time: 20 years’ worth of development within a two-year build, providing five high-quality facilities in one substantial build.
We delivered a complex and quality design complementing the College’s iconic buildings and environment. The build delivered a sports hall, competition pool, fitness suite, squash courts, kitchen, dining and common rooms, shop, pavilion and 32 classrooms set over three to four floors, while also providing connections between key College facilities. The sports pavilion, designed to complement the College’s Gothic façade, was handed over in time for celebrations to mark the College’s 150th anniversary.
“VINCI cannot be faulted, as we got on very well with their team who possessed a can-do attitude always. They were very knowledgeable and helpful, always able to find a solution. They went above and beyond their responsibility to get the job done, exceeding all expectations.
Our new facility is a game changer with the wow factor in quality and we couldn’t be happier”.
