QEGS Theatre Auditorium, Kent


Lee Ryall has engineered numerous projects in the Education sector. From new buildings for schools and colleges, to student accommodation and campus development projects.

This project involved engineering a new theatre building as an extension to the existing Sixth Form Centre at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School (QEGS) in Faversham. It serves as a performance space for music and drama students, as well as a venue for lectures and speaking events. The building also provides a display area for exhibitions and a community space for local groups and performers.

The extension has been integrated with the Sixth Form Centre which was originally designed by architects Lee Evans Partnership and constructed in 2015.

Sustainable Construction
The 2-storey extension is a steel frame construction with Durisol Ecobrix woodcrete wall form units. These are a sustainable and cost- effective alternative to traditional methods of construction.

The pre-insulated interlocking blocks are dry stacked together to form the walls, then in-filled with concrete to form a monolithic structural walling system. The award-winning wall form units are manufactured from ‘woodcrete’ – a recycled cement-bonded wood fibre material.
