CASE STUDY: Eliot College Extension, University of Kent

The Eliot College extension is a two-storey administration building situated in ‘the heart’ of the University of Kent. Built in the 1980’s, the design of the building was similar to many others built on the campus around that time - including the original Eliot College building nearby.

The project was managed by DCB (Kent) Ltd and included upgrade works to mechanical and electrical systems as well as over-cladding the exterior and replacing the existing old defective metal sliding windows and wooden doors with a new, highly insulated, thermally broken system.

Following the tender process, Prima Systems were selected as the glazing and cladding partner for the project.
