Winvic Construction and PATRIZIA have announced the topping out of the first phase of a build-to-rent (BTR) mixed-use development in Birmingham, UK.

Located adjacent to Edgbaston Stadium, the new residential development includes 375 apartments built over two blocks.

It comprises 169 two-bedroom, 17 three-bedroom apartments, and 189 one-bedroom.

The BTR scheme includes a rooftop terrace, a landscaped podium deck, retail/commercial units on the ground floor, undercroft car parking and bicycle storage, and a gym.

Back of house facilities as well as 111 new onsite car parking spaces for new residents are also included in the development.

Winvic’s work under the contract also includes the full fit-out of the development.

Now, it has commenced the façade installation programme that includes installation of a steel framing system (SFS), masonry and windows.

Next year, the company plans to fit out the amenity and storage areas, entrance, and ground floor plant.

Fit out of the apartments is scheduled to commence from next year spring.

The project’s drainage and incoming utility services works are planned to be completed by the end of January next year.

Winvic has planned to deliver the project in the third quarter of 2023.

PATRIZIA development director Richard Scutt said: “Birmingham has one of the largest private rental sectors outside London and PATRIZIA is at the forefront of delivering homes for this growing community.

“This topping out of phase one is an occasion to celebrate and our construction partner Winvic is doing an incredible job in delivering the scheme swiftly and safely, as well as providing assistance with obtaining the sustainable and wellbeing certifications.

“We are prioritising wellness of residents within the design by targeting Fitwel certification, an international standard of rating wellbeing in a building.

“The building will also achieve a Homes Quality Mark certification, making it one of the first BTR developments to obtain this accreditation, attesting to high standards of build, running costs, health and wellbeing and sustainability.”
