Colmore Plaza

New build Grade A office of 307,000sq ft over eighteen floors

Infrastructure & Civil Engineering

The Infrastructure Group at Brookbanks led the transport planning and engineering design for this iconic city centre office development in Birmingham.

This eighteen floor Grade A building was designed to provide thirteen floors of office accommodation and five floors of basement car parking. Careful design and assessment allowed the substantial retention of the basement from the former Birmingham Post and Mail newspaper publishing building.

Brookbanks provided the following key services:

  • Transport Planning
  • Civil Engineering
  • Structural Design

Colmore Plaza won the Regional Award for Best Commercial Workplace.

The citation which came with the award states "..the Judges were impressed by the ingenuity involved in tackling structural issues associated with this project."
