Set in a beautiful location, the iconic Eastbourne College has taught many of the world’s great and good. The College decided to undergo a complete overhaul of their dining, sporting and recreational facilities. VINCI Construction UK won the £22.5 million project and were delighted to be working with them to complete aspects of the build.
We constructed primarily the new classroom buildings. Of which the key feature was the use of the Silka large format blocks to create the load bearing walls which are 25N in strength. Each block is laid on thin joint mortar and is placed using a mini motorised crane.
The whole development completed in may 2017 to fit in with the College’s plans to commemorate its 150 years since its founding.
