This project at the prestigious Eton College School consisted of the construction of three new buildings, creating facilities for new modern languages, economics, politics, a divinity building, and lecture theatre. The state of the art lecture theatre structure was built in classical Greek style, comprising masonry brickwork & blockwork, the building features tiered upholstered seating to accommodate 250 people and a further 50 people accommodated within high level balconies.

The buildings formed quadrangle with a new central courtyard built in classical style to mirror and maintain the street frontage.

External works comprised of soft  landscaping including, permeable block paving and drainage.

Design and construction solutions were sympathetic to the adjoining buildings on this historic site, the site was very close to live, occupied areas of the College, precautions and guidelines were implemented to ensure the safety of the pupils, teacher and other members of the public.

Officially opened by HRH the Prince of Wales in June 2015.
