Bishop Milner Catholic School, Dudley

Major redevelopment of Bishop Milner Catholic School, carried out in phases over the course of 4 years.

The New accommodation includes faculty departments for Art, Science, Design Technology, Modern Foreign Languages, English, Maths and Humanities and replaces existing, outdated buildings to form an open quadrangle around a landscaped courtyard.

Careful planning was required to successfully phase the demolition and construction work on the restricted site, so as not to compromise the operation of the school, whose accommodation remained live throughout the project.

Additional later projects on the site have also included the provision of a new all-weather sports surface, refurbished sports facilities, security works, landscaping and access improvements and a new School Chapel.
