OSG were approached by WW Martin on a Design and Build basis to provide the technical architectural package for the provision of a new ICT block and alteration works to existing Grade II listed buildings at Ursuline College.

The new ICT block is located in a prominent position at the front of the school site and includes three large classrooms, a server room and accessible bathroom facilities.

time-efficient delivery

To ensure efficient project delivery and minimise on-site disruption for staff and students, we specified an MMC (Modern Methods of Construction) timber frame for the new ICT block. The use of this construction method aided in accelerating the construction process, allowing for a timely completion within just eight months. By implementing the MMC timber frame, we were able to successfully reduce the impact of construction activities on the school, ensuring a smooth and uninterrupted learning environment.


The finished project received high praise from both the school and funders, Kent County Council (KCC). The precision and attention to detail demonstrated by the team were commended for their transformative impact on the school's learning environment. The new ICT block, with its modern design and state-of-the-art facilities, has made a significant difference in enhancing the educational experience of the students at Ursuline College.
