Construction begins on latest phase of Paradise

Construction is set to begin in the heart of Birmingham, over a month after the collapse of Carillion.

The latest phase of work is ignoring the stalled development of ‘One Chamberlain Square’, focusing only on the site’s second major development – Two Chamberlain Square.

The 183,000 sq ft modern office buildings will combine with One chamberlain Square (upon completion) to form the most visual section of the Paradise development.

Between them, the speculative buildings will eventually offer more than 350,000 sq ft of office and retail space, forming one of the city’s most prestigious commercial addresses.

The building is due to be completed in late 2019.

BAM, which was appointed contractor last year, will oversee a team of more than 200 construction workers.

Two basement levels have already been created, meaning you will be able to see the early workings of the development take shape.

Designed by local based architects Glenn Howells, the development will have 8 stories and include retail space as well as views across the Museum & Art Gallery, as well as the Town Hall. 

Rob Groves, Regional Director of Argent, Development Managers for Paradise, said: “The start of work on Two Chamberlain Square, our second speculative office building, underlines the momentum gathering around Paradise and marks yet another milestone for the city’s most vibrant, mixed use development.”

Argent has previously worked with BAM on several projects both in Birmingham and across the UK. BAM built seven of the eleven buildings at Brindleyplace, as well as buildings at King’s Cross in London.
