10 Brindleyplace refurb completes

10 Brindleyplace

CBRE Investment Management has completed its back to the frame transformation of 10 Brindleyplace, Birmingham’s largest office refurbishment scheme.

10 Brindleyplace is the first Fitwel accredited office in Birmingham – a standard that measures occupant health and wellbeing. The scheme has also achieved sustainability credentials, including an EPC A rating, a BREEAM Excellent rating and a Platinum WiredScore.

As well as the creation of 210,000 sq ft of grade A office space, the workplace benefits from a smart building platform from Smart Spaces, making 10 Brindleyplace one of the most technologically advanced office buildings in the country.

Laura Wilson-Brown, UK head of asset management offices, at CBRE Investment Management said: “10 Brindleyplace delivers a new standard of space, to meet the flight to quality demands of the modern occupier. The building provides a high quality, amenity-rich, sustainable workplace, in a market where deliverability of Grade A space is getting ever harder for investors and developers.”

Partnering with CBRE Investment Management, Spacemade will deliver 27,000 sq ft of flexible workspace at 10 Brindleyplace – 10X. Amenities will include private studios and co-working space for more than 500 people, meeting rooms, a coffee shop and roastery and a 2,000 sq ft auditorium and event space.

Dan Silverman, co-founder at Spacemade, said: “The addition of flexible workspace to 10 Brindleyplace is the perfect addition to such a forward-thinking scheme as this. By keeping control and transparency of the flexible workspace, CBRE IM is able to retain the relationship with their customers and fully integrate this crucial amenity into the rest of the building, creating a truly seamless customer experience. With the increased focus on hybrid working, this environment will give members the variety and flexibility required to attract Birmingham’s best talent to the office.”

Lead project manager Paul Stanley, technical director in Workman LLP’s Venture team, said: “The complex refurbishment and retrofitting of large office buildings is a growing theme, as investors seek to improve the ESG performance of their holdings and avoid carbon-intensive knockdown-and-rebuild strategies. 10 Brindleyplace is a beacon of best practice for this effort – having transformed two smaller outdated office spaces into an industry-leading workspace that sets the bar for both Birmingham and the wider UK office market.”

CBRE and Savills are acting as joint agents for the office space.
