Frank Shaw Associates prepared the masterplan for the re-organisation of Mill Hill Secondary School. They also prepared the detailed design for the first phase of the redevelopment which included art, science and technology areas and general teaching space. Both enhanced and minor refurbishment works were needed throughout the campus.
All works were coordinated to allow completion without disruption to the operational school and to eliminate the need for costly and wasteful short term temporary accommodation. The £7.5m project was the largest to date under the five year Derbyshire County Council framework agreement.
The project also included the refurbishment and upgrading of a number of the existing 1960s classrooms.
