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.
