The Minack Theatre, carved out of the granite cliff tops over 80 years ago, is one of the World’s most famous outdoor amphitheatres in a truly stunning setting. BBS has been appointed Building Control by RLT Architects of Penzance. RLT and BBS worked together on the complete re-build of the actors' changing room facilities back in 2010-2011. This latest scheme involves alterations to the backstage facilities building by extending the roof at second floor level with a new pitched roof and creating a third floor storage area.
We are delighted to be involved, once again, with The Minack Theatre Trust and RLT architects on such a unique project and location!

Hospice in the Weald is a charity local to BBS’ Head Office in Lamberhurst, Kent. The charity provides support for people with terminal illnesses in the Kent and East Sussex area. No charge is made for these services which are provided on the basis of need rather than ability to pay. The Hospice relies on donations to fund their work and needs to raise over £7 million each year to provide their vital services to not only patients, but their families and carers as well.
BBS is delighted to, once again, be sponsoring this annual cycling event which took place on Sunday, 7th May and brought together over 260 cyclists.

The latest in our list of schools projects is now complete. BBS provided the Building Control and our Environmental division carried out the BREEAM Assessment. The Foreland School, near Ramsgate, was developed under the Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Strategy and accomodates the needs of 200 pupils with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD). The building is single storey throughout to ensure ease of access to all parts of the school for all pupils and give good access to outdoor play and learning spaces. Further information about the project is availbale on our Education Projects page.
