Prestec Completes Mirus Academy Project

Prestec is delighted to announce the completion of Phase 2 of the £1.1m major refurbishment project at The Mirus Academy in Walsall, three weeks ahead of schedule.

Following completion of Phase 1 at the beginning of October 2014, which involved refurbishing the English block ready for pupils at the start of the new academic year, Prestec commenced Phase 2, which comprised the upgrade and total refurbishment of the four-storey Tower Block.


Worth £650,000, the second phase commenced at the end of September 2014 and was set to last for 20 weeks, with completion due the end March 2015. However, Prestec were able to complete the project four weeks ahead of schedule, in early February 2014, within budget.

The contract required the complete refurbishment of the classrooms, offices, toilets and staircases, which involved new electrical and data installation; upgrading of the existing heating system, including the boiler; new internal insulation to all external walls, complete new plastering, new windows and doors and complete decoration and floor finishes throughout.


Worth a total spend of £1.1m, the contract at The Mirus Academy, Leamore Road Entrance, Walsall, West Midlands WS2 7NR highlights Prestec’s ability to manage a large complex project from start to completion, providing the highest levels of quality, finish and attention to detail throughout.
