Contractor picked for £38.8m Brindleyplace refurbishment
CBRE Global Investors has selected Willmott Dixon Interiors to deliver the £38.8m refurbishment of a landmark Birmingham office block.
The fit-out and refurbishment specialist contractor will transform 10 Brindleyplace to modern CAT-A standards.
The project will be led by Willmott Dixon Interiors, in partnership with sister company, Willmott Dixon Construction providing specialist structural elements.
The redevelopment will combine 10 and 8 Brindleyplace into one building to create a single floor by floor open office space of 212,000 sq ft over nine floors and deliver one of Birmingham’s largest available floorplates at over 27,000 sq ft.
CBRE Global Investors has appointed a wider project team that includes Associated Architects, Thamesis as development manager, RLF as quantity surveyor, project management by Venture, the specialist project management team within Workman, structural engineer Cundall, M&E engineer Couch Perry Wilkes, and facade consultant Wintech.
The project is expected to be completed in mid-2022.
Phil Crowther, director at Willmott Dixon Interiors, said: “We’re incredibly pleased to have been appointed to deliver the full redevelopment of such an important Birmingham office block. This project will provide the opportunity to reinvent the two buildings and enhance both the marketability and investment value of 10 Brindleyplace. We’ll be delivering a high quality specification and the very best finishes throughout to create a stunning new facility in an exciting and well connected destination, that will rival the best office buildings in Birmingham.
“A refurbishment of this scale requires construction and project management expertise of significant capability, as we will be stripping both buildings back to a concrete shell. We’re very much looking forward to working in partnership with colleagues at Willmott Dixon and leveraging the considerable skills of both teams to bring the project to fruition. Being selected as the chosen contractor reflects both the financial strength of our business and our proven ability to deliver on time and within budget.”
