Canterbury International College
The King's School, Canterbury

A new building providing school boarding rooms and classrooms for international students visiting The King’s School, Canterbury, on a site previously occupied by car repair garages.

The upper two-storeys of the school buildings are constructed from Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT), on an exposed insitu concrete podium base.

The building is clad in exposed concrete panels and Corten steel.

Extensive negotiations were required, undertaken by the Price & Myers Civil Engineering team, to gain permission for the building to be constructed over a 600mm diameter strategic sewer.
