Speller Metcalfe was awarded the project to restore and improve facilities at Stevens Park in Quarry Bank, Dudley.
Following public consultation and input from the Friends of Stevens Park, Tintern House (formerly known as the White House) was restored and extended to create a community café, new toilets and meeting rooms as part of the first phase of works. The Emily Jordan Foundation, a charity working to support people with learning disabilities, now operates from the newly opened Tintern House, and has developed a programme of workshops including horticultural training bicycle recycling, alongside other opportunities to support people with learning disabilities to move closer towards work.
Further improvements include new access to the Peace Gardens to enable wheelchair and pushchair users to enjoy the memorial setting, alongside additional footpaths and planting.
