Ashdown House School, West Sussex


September 1993

Elston’s first project, Ashdown House School, involved the build of a three-storey dormitory block and 16-metre indoor pool. We were the only contractor willing to commit to the 20-week construction programme for the first-phase swimming pool build and, despite one of the wettest autumns in years, completed on time and to budget. The successful and timely completion of phase one enabled the school to secure the necessary funding for the dormitory block, for which we were the preferred partners.
