MidKent College is the largest College of Higher and Further Education in Kent, providing an extensive range of learning and training services. The College operates from two centres in Gillingham and Maidstone in Kent.

As part of a major redevelopment of The Maidstone Campus, the College acquired the UCA Campus. BSPS were selected as a design and build Main Contractor to convert the existing classrooms and offices into state of the art chemistry and biology science laboratories, prep rooms and teaching facilities.

The project was designed, procured and built within a very restricted timescale of 7 weeks during the College holiday period. The main building, and those surrounding it remained operational and occupied at all times with students and staff. This required certain works to be undertaken by the team outside of normal working hours.
