Description

This seven storey apartment block consists of 119 new homes constructed on a long standing derelict site in the centre of Birmingham.

The site challenges consisted of building within an existing basement and constructing very close to the existing Rail Tunnel. This involved extensive liaison with Network Rail to ensure the integrity of their asset throughout the build.
