King's School has invested in a prestigious new £2.5m Boat House.

Located on the eastern bank of the River Severn in Worcester close to the Cathedral, the City now has an iconic new landmark The Kings School Boathouse. Inspired by the generosity of former pupil Michael Baker, the prestigious building takes the form of an upturned boat.

Due to the high aesthetical requirements, a scheme was proposed where all the network cabling was hidden from view but accessible for future possible expansion. Due to the nature of the building, its use and its close proximity to water, consideration had to be given to both water and moisture ingress for the design of the IT / Communication project.

The installed high speed network supports not just the staff and pupils but is also connected to the main Building Management Systems (BMS), CCTV, Security and door access systems.

Kings School is one of the leading academic institutions in the West Midlands.

The school borders the river Severn and is said to enjoy one of the finest settings of any city school in the Country.

Kings school chose the Kirby Group because of their shared values, unrivalled technical expertise and superb service.
