Project SOS - How It Helped

You voted for your favourite community project in Kent - now see how Project SOS helped the winner, Pent Valley Technology College Sensory Garden.

Being involved in a big project can be hard work, especially when you're relying on the help of volunteers and have a limited (if any) budget! And we knew that you'd love it if a team of experts were ready to pick up tools and give a helping hand for free!

That’s exactly what construction expert Skanska offered with Project SOS Kent – giving one lucky project the chance to benefit from its world class expertise, time and skills. The Skanska team were looking to give a helping hand to a great Kent project you voted in your droves to make it a reality for one project.

That project was the Pent Valley Technology College's Sensory Garden.

They needed help to turn their tired and dilapidated outdoor space into a reflective sensory garden for their students and the community to enjoy, including those with a visual or physical impairment and specific learning needs.

See all of the photos of the garden, before and after, here in our gallery!




Skanska is a UK leader in delivering projects in many areas including facilities management and maintenance.

Throughout the UK and right here in Kent, the people at Skanska are working on roads, street lights, schools, hospitals and much more - aiming to provide a better life for you and your community.  

You may not see them - but they're around you every day, working with real people, on real projects.
