Childrens Nursery and Adult Training Centre

Derwent Stepping Stones is the result of a big vision by a small organisation.


Challenging expectations, perceptions and the reputation of the area both in design and procurement this project has become a key player in the regeneration of the area, physically, emotionally and educationally.


Very early on in the design the children decided that the building was their ship, once finished the local MP described it as a metaphorical Ark taking its community on a journey of discovery!


Derwent Stepping Stones won the 2006 Award of Certificate of Craftsmanship by the East Midlands Joint Consultative Committee for Construction.


Derwent Stepping Stones was highly commended for the Derby City Design Award 2006.
