BAM selected as contractor for Doone Silver Kerr designed 103 Colmore Row, Birmingham
Located on the site of the former NatWest Tower, construction of Birmingham’s most anticipated new office development, 103 Colmore Row, has taken a major step forward.
Rockspring Property Investment Managers LLP (Rockspring) and Sterling Property Ventures (Sterling), the development team behind Birmingham’s tallest office tower, have selected BAM for the £80 million build contract.
Designed by architects Doone Silver Kerr, 103 Colmore Row will comprise 223,631 sq ft of office space over 20 floors, and 7,665 sq ft of restaurant space on the ground and top floors. At 346ft/105.5m high, with the apex 246m above sea level, it is the highest new office building under construction outside London. The landmark building also features a winter garden, 18th floor terrace and multi-purpose lobby business lounges.
BAM’s appointment follows a 24-month phase demolishing the former NatWest Tower, preparation of the substructure, and the procurement of the new building. The main substructure works commence in early June, with completion of the 26-storey building set for Q3 2020.
