Our most notable and complex development was the prestigious Scholars Gate in Severn Street, Birmingham. This development comprises 38 apartments, two office suites and a café created within the fabric of the UK’s most historically significant Grade II Listed schools.
This project has involved a partnership arrangement with the landlord Birmingham City Council in order to devise a scheme that satisfied the planners, conservation architects, English Heritage and ultimately the Council’s long term visions for the area.
Using our collaborative approach planning permission was achieved in a record 6 weeks rather than the usual 13 weeks. Great care was taken in designing the buildings to conform to modern living and the conversion of the extremely dilapidated buildings required extreme attention to detail and a very hands on approach, with decisions on site being made very quickly to ensure we hit our build programme.
