WCN Editorial Team 28 Mar 2018 EUROPE BUILDINGS

BAM Construction has been appointed to complete Carillion’s One Chamberlain Square development at Paradise Birmingham in the UK.

Work came to a halt on 15 January 2018 when the original contractor, Carillion, went into liquidation.

BAM Construction, which is currently building Two Chamberlain Square, will manage the completion of One Chamberlain Square and the existing building supply chain.

The building, which topped out in December 2017, will be handed over to international professional services firm PwC in early 2019 for its Birmingham office relocation.

BAM will take over the site on 23 March 2018.

Demolition contractor DSM has remained active on site at Paradise throughout the winter period, maintaining the programme for Two Chamberlain Square.

Hermes Investment Management head of private markets Chris Taylor said: “Paradise Birmingham is one of the leading mixed-use developments in the UK.

“This transformational scheme will create up to 10,000 new jobs as well as support thousands more across Birmingham and the region.

“Thanks to a sterling effort by the wider Paradise team and our supporting supply chain, we look forward to both of our first new buildings completing during 2019.”

The building is expected to be completed over the next year.

At 1.8 million ft², Paradise Birmingham will deliver up to 10 new buildings, offering offices, shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and a four star hotel across 17 acres.

Paradise Circus Limited Partnership (PCLP), a private-public joint venture with Birmingham City Council, is implementing the Paradise Birmingham redevelopment.

Hermes Investment Management, which partnered with Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) on the first phase of the development, is managing the private sector funding for Phase One and Two. Argent is the development manager.

Paradise Birmingham is located within the country’s largest city centre Enterprise Zone and has already benefited from investment by the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) in enabling and infrastructure works.
