Ebbsfleet Garden City school campus (Alkerden Academy) has been sent in for planning!
The scheme involves the construction of a primary school and secondary school along a community sports hall, on an infilled chalk quarry in Kent.
HTS managed numerous site investigations and carried out detailed analysis of the made ground, and were able to justify efficient shallow raft and pad foundations on the site.
The primary school is a mass timber frame with exposed Glulam beams and CLT floors. The secondary school is partly RC framed and partly steel. 20m long span Glulam beams with CLT panels will form the dramatic roof over the sports hall.
Work is due to start on site this summer.
