New boarding facilities for ACS Cobham

Caledonian appointed for £13m turnkey contract for ACS Cobham International School

Posted by Stephanie Broad | May 22, 2016 | International

An all-new facility at international school ACS Cobham will complement the school’s existing boarding house, set in 128 acres, providing an additional 113 bed spaces (all in premium single and double rooms). Supervisor accommodation, study areas and common rooms in addition to the student bedrooms complete this ergonomically designed, eye-catching four storey building.

The building was designed by Broadway Malyan and Caledonian will start work on the full turnkey package in the next few weeks, comprising the new build stand-alone boarding house and associated external works, encompassing a blend of traditional and modular construction. The accelerated offsite programme will reduce the construction period by 40% and will deliver the facility in time for ACS Cobham to have the additional boarding provision available for the start of the new school year in 2017.

Caledonian CEO, Paul Lang, comments: “This is a significant project for Caledonian. Not only will we be responsible for the manufacture and construction of the modular components of the building, but we will also demonstrate our credentials as a principal design and build contractor”.

Ian Jones, Senior Project Manager for ACS Cobham, adds: “renowned for innovation and pioneering the provision of high quality education, ACS selected Caledonian for the outstanding quality of their work, the efficiency of their manufacturing process and the significantly reduced levels of disruption their approach affords our rich school life”.

ACS Cobham offers a rigorous curriculum including the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma and US-based Advanced Placement to 1,500 students from over 70 different nationalities. The new boarding house development will be completed by June 2017.
