The Bekynton Field development is the latest addition to the renewal and conservation project to protect and improve Eton College.

Originally ‘Birley Schools’ and home to science laboratories, this area of the College is one of the few that requires renewal rather than conservation.

Designed by John Simpson in the neoclassical style, the most important consideration in the design specification and build of the Bekyton Field development is to ‘construct facilities that will last for generations’. The new £19 million development will be home to the modern languages department and include a lecture / debating theatre and exhibition space, currently earmarked for the return of the ‘Myers Collection’.

JB-RED batten was chosen by specialist sub-contractor Attley’s as the preferred roofing batten for the project. Specified as ‘BS5534 treated soft sawn wood’ Attley’s chose JB-RED for its quality and performance. The Burlington Slate that has been installed on the roofs of the main building areas is a truly traditional material. Quarried in the English Lake District for over 300 years and is used on older part of the college estate.

Testimonial

“The roof covering will only perform as well as the rest of the roof build up, and if it has been installed to a high standard. We’re proud to work on such a prestigious project with quality products we trust. This beautiful traditional roof will protect the college facilities for many, many years after we finish on this project!”
