Diocese of Worcester: Heritage & Conservation consultancy opportunities

Specialist Consultants required for Dudley Top Church – our Grade II* new Resourcing Church:

  1. Heritage Design Team (incl. a Conservation-accredited Architect, Principal Designer, Structural Engineer, M&E Consultant and other specialist consultants as required)
  2. Quantity Surveyor
  3. Heritage Engagement Team (incl. Activity Planner, Interpretation Planner, and Interpretation Designer)

Top Church Dudley requires extensive conservation repairs to the cast iron windows and exterior stonework and the conservation of the enamelled glass East Window in order to remove it from the Heritage At Risk Register. A successful major bid to the National Lottery Heritage Fund has received a Round 1 pass for £167,000 of Development Phase work to plan for building conservation and an imaginative heritage engagement programme that both reaches out to the people of Dudley and secures a sustainable future for this building.

Consultants are now required for the Development Phase and, where appropriate and if our Round 2 bid succeeds, for the Delivery Phase. Submissions can be made by individuals or teams for any combination of the advertised Briefs.
