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.

CASE STUDY: Prima’s support helps to secure CIF funding for facade transformation at Canterbury Academy

In November 2015 the team at The Canterbury Academy were preparing to submit their Condition Improvement Fund (CIF)

bid application for improvements to the main building on campus. The Academy team enlisted the help of Modus Construction Consultants to help them define their requirements and compile the CIF application.

In order to strengthen the technical side of the application Modus requested a detailed façade investigation report from Prima Systems. This report assesses the condition of the existing façade and, where possible, provides advice on potential improvements. It also highlights any health and safety failings as well as non-compliant elements on the building.
