Project case study

The King’s School, Canterbury

Key Information

Client: The King’s School

Location: Canterbury, Kent

This is a Watkins FM Solutions Special project of a heritage site which has roots dating back to 597 AD, and was once again refounded in 1541. To help modernise the school and make it more energy efficient, an old Day House (Mitchinson’s) was relocated outside of the Precincts, so the old building could be demolished and a new Science building erected in its place, with all works completed in April 2023.

Working in conjunction with Coniston, Skelly and Couch and The King’s School, Watkins carried out the mechanical installation of the new Science block at The King’s School, Canterbury.

The project consisted of a new plant room with new boilers and associated plant providing heating to the new block. Also, new school classrooms and science laboratories were designed with underfloor heating, BMS controls, natural ventilation and a gas safety system.

It was a pleasure to be a part of such a historic project that encapsulates moments in history and will undoubtedly continue to thrive in this beautiful Kentish City.
