The Brief

Our client was contracted by Eton College to refurbish and upgrade student accommodation and improve living areas for over 100 staff and students. The scheme involved a high quality refurbishment of 50 study-bedrooms at Evan’s House and the construction of a three-storey extension within an adjoining courtyard. Beard delivered the scheme in phases to enable the boarding residence to remain open and operational throughout the project.

They were also awarded a second project to refurbish and upgrade the student boarding facilities at Farrer House.

The Solution

Contract Value: £1.4 million

Duration: Multi-year

  • Delivered a solution based on the logistical constraints on site, minimising disruption to daily college life.

We have used Advanced Waste Solutions for a number of years on various projects and can’t fault the service we have been getting. They offer a wide range of skip options/ services and can back up the good on site service with all the paperwok and reports you would expect as part of an overall waste management service. I would happily recommend AWS to other builders/ developers who want good overall service and support from a waste management company.
