Munday + Cramer have this week been notified that they will be joining the Diocese of Westminster’s approved consultants panel. This seal of approval follows a raft of new instructions; particularly with academies and Multi-Academy Trusts across London and the South-East.
The multi-disciplinary building surveying and architectural practice have worked with a number of Diocesan schools in recent years. Most notably St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School, where Munday + Cramer have successfully delivered a range of schemes in the past 15 years. In addition to largely re-modelling the school over the years, specific projects completed include:
- A new entrance and safeguarding improvements
- Extensive hard landscaping
- Infill extension to create a new library
- Kitchen refurbishment
- Complete roof refurbishment across the school
To gain approval to the Diocese of Westminster’s approved panel; Munday + Cramer had to exhibit and evidence a range of skills and experience. Particular focus was placed on the practice’s knowledge of LCVAP funding; the key method in Diocesan schools funding works. Speaking of the appointment, Rob Barr said “we’re really proud to have been formally appointed to the consultants’ panel”. He also noted “we’ve worked with schools such as St. Anne’s for many years, and we hope to take our high levels of service to many more schools for the Diocese”.
