Carillion has secured a contract to build the first building of Birmingham’s transformational Paradise Scheme.

The UK-based company is the phase one enabling and infrastructure contractor for the £500M mixed-use project, and has now been named as the contractor for the seven-storey contemporary building.

The 16,000sq m ‘One Chamberlain Square’ will include a roof terrace on the sixth floor and restaurants and retail units on the ground level.

Simon Dingle, Carillion’s operations director, said: “Paradise is a crucial project for the city and Carillion is very proud to be playing such a major role in its delivery.

“We are looking forward to completing the enabling works on the site and being able to bring our considerable experience to construct One Chamberlain Square.”

The Paradise scheme will involve the development of commercial, civic, retail, leisure and hotel space, as well as improving pedestrian access and enhancing public realm.

The project is being developed through Paradise Circus Limited Partnership (PCLP) — a private-public joint venture with Birmingham City Council.
