    Following on from initial design of an insitu reinforced concrete frame to support the planning application, CWA have undertaken discussions with precast concrete providers in order to assess alternative construction methodologies.

Description

The project includes a block of 206 high-end apartments close to Five Ways in Edgbaston, Birmingham, along with a two storey car park to the rear.

The block will also open into a large, hotel style concierge lobby with a cafe and gym.

The building is a 16 storey precast concrete frame to the main floors, with an additional two storey lightweight steel structure on top forming the duplex apartments. The floors are supported on a combination of concrete columns and walls, and the building is stabilised by the main concrete stability core and shear walls.

The structure is supported on a series of piled foundations to transmit the loading into the underlying Bromsgrove Sandstone.

The building is situated next to the redevelopment of Number 1 Hagley Road which has been redeveloped into apartments.
