Firetec have been selected by Buxton Building Contractors to provide the passive fire protection works at the new concert hall at the Beneden School in Kent. This highly prestigious independent School founded in 1923 and situated in 250 acres of Kent countryside, is a leading boarding school for 550 girls. Previous students include The Princess Royal and Princess Basma of Jordan. The new School Hall, designed by Guy Hollaway Architects, will seat up to 750 and will provide an extraordinary performance space for the School. The new Music School, attached by a link building, will support the main hall with a number of practice, rehearsal, percussion and song rooms along with a 150-seat Recital Hall opening onto a courtyard/amphitheatre.
