Currently looking at the Equestrian Arena, Millfield Schol project

Kendall Kingscott were appointed to provide Employer’s Agent services for the provision of a bespoke Indoor Equestrian Arena to complement the campus based established livery yard, riding school, all-weather outdoor arena and polo facilities at Millfield School.

The impressive architecturally designed structure by Spatial Structures is a clear span spatial steel framed structure with a PVC tension membrane fabric roof covering. The external walls are complemented by softwood vertical wall cladding and access to the arena is provided with Roller Shutter Doors to the main entrance.

Our role included ensuring the specialist design was constructed in accordance with the construction programme, respecting the requirements of an operational school establishment and staying within budget. The new development is situated within close proximity to the existing equine stabling, occupied boarding houses and full time residential livery staff, so our main priority was maintaining the safety of staff, pupils and horses during the construction works.

The new Indoor Equestrian Centre is a major asset to the school and will provide a significant resource to maximise the operation of the equestrian aspect of the school curriculum and assist with training and competitions.
