Miles - top of the form

November 2011

Bromsgrove based Miles Industries (specialists in the refurbishment and fit out of the built environment) recently partnered with Miller Construction in the building of the City of Stoke-on-Trent 6th Form College which has been awarded the North Staffordshire Architecture and Urban Design award 2010 by Urban Vision.

Although Miller Construction were appointed as main contractors to build the new campus at City of Stoke-on-Trent 6th Form College, the team at Miles had a fundamental involvement in many areas of the design, particularly in the design of the three unique pods within the main atrium.  

Miles undertook  construction of the pods which proved to be very complex in terms of the structure and the polished-plaster finish of the pods was difficult to apply but their inclusion has proved to be a success as they form an integral part of the new campus, both visually and physically and provide valuable specialist-teaching spaces.

The brand new £33 million college is set at the very heart of the University Quarter

and is an iconic buildings to welcome commuters as they enter the City or as they pass by on the West Coast Line.

The Judging Panel were unanimous in their decision and stated: “The new Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College is of significant architectural merit and is evidence of the step change in design quality that is taking place in North Staffordshire. The building is open, welcoming and vibrant and cannot fail to delight those that use it.”

This award recognises also the contribution to the regeneration of the sub-region as well as the ability to deliver a sustainable development.
