Etchingham Barns progress on site

The scaffolding is being struck to expose the larch timber cladding on the new community development in Etchingham.

External works are progressing well and the scaffolding is being struck. The majority of the larch cladding is now complete and the building will be weather tight when the final parts of curtain walling are installed this month.

The new school, pre-school and community facilities will cater for 36 pre-school children, 120 pupils and provide space for community use. The design team has worked closely with East Sussex County Council, Etchingham Primary School, Etchingham Trust for Sport and Recreation, Etchingham Parish Council and the Diocese of Chichester to ensure that the new facility supports the wider village community by allowing shared use of spaces.

The accommodation is arranged in three connected modern timber clad barns, arranged to respond to the sloping site on the edge of the village. The barns are finished in slate roofs with extended canopies and glazed gables opening onto a new village square.

The project is being constructed by Balfour Beatty and is due to be completed early in 2015.
