We are thrilled that the project made it to the finals for the two timber construction awards: Structural Timber Awards (Categories "Low Energy Project of the Year", "Client of the Year", "Project of the Year"), as well as Wood Awards (Category "Buildings").
King's College School, Wimbledon: New Music School is exemplary in its achievement of client vision, innovative architecture and design. The project objective was to create a state-of-the-art music facility for a leading academic school in the UK. The new building is arranged over three floors, comprising music rooms, a stunning concert hall (which can accommodate an audience of 200 alongside a 70-piece orchestra), classroom spaces, the new porters' lodge and staff administration/office spaces.
Cundall provided structural, civil and geotechnical engineering services on this prestigious project.
The project was officially opened in October 2018 and the client is delighted with the finished product – “We are proud to have first class music performance, practice and classroom spaces in a dynamic yet respectful addition to the school and its local community.”
