In 2007 The Downs School announced its merger with Malvern College Prep. As the retained College Architect squiresandbrown designed a Masterplan for an expanded single campus at The Downs site. We reported on the condition and suitability of all the facilities and identified areas for refurbishment and new development. Leading a comprehensive team of consultants covering a wide range of disciplines we secured planning approval for twelve individual projects. Following a challenging schedule the three largest schemes were operational within fourteen months of our appointment. The largest project was this £2.1m sports hall, changing facility and senior classroom block.
