BBS has been appointed Building Control on an extensive refurbishment and re-modelling of an existing commercial property in the heart of Tunbridge Wells. The scheme involves the strip-out and de-construction of the 3-storey building back to its original concrete frame. The subsequent re-build includes two additional storeys and a large rear extension.
The building will feature a bronze clad louvre screen to provide protection from solar gain and privacy for the tenant. Bronze will also be used in the new entrance, circulation core and in the box framed cladding of several windows on the main façade.
The energy modelling of the building is being undertaken by the BBS Environmental Team.

The Skinners' Kent Primary School was delivered to time and budget. The new school is situated within the heart of the new Knights Wood development to the North of Tunbridge Wells. Designed and built on behalf of Kent County Council, this new sustainable school development hosts a 2-storey state-of the-art teaching facility and outdoor space with scope for development at a later date to accommodate increased student numbers.
Baxall’s winning bid offered KCC a value engineered solution using ‘modern methods of construction’ which specifically encompassed a STREIF off-site fabricated approach as opposed to a traditional build on site.
In addition to the benefits realised through an advanced timber solution, the early-stage value engineering exercise highlighted a number of potential savings on prelims and foundations against a steel frame/ masonry approach. This, coupled with further sustainable design features such as photovoltaic panels created an energy efficient building which will generate whole life cost savings for the school.
The project was designed and delivered using BIM (Building Information Modelling). The use of 3D technology enabled delivery to be significantly more efficient in comparison to a traditional 2D approach.
