#902 BSAC Workplace Refurbishment

Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham

​The aim was to completely transform the workplace, which covers 4 floors including a basement of a Grade II listed building, and requires both external and internal improvements. 

The design is based on modern industrialism to reflect the former character of the building. The new layout intends to enable the client to improve its work environment by facilitating co-working, improving break-out areas for employees and improving communication between the different departments


#936 Albion Court, Frederick Street

Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham

This project involves the full refurbishment of Albion Court in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, a building which had previously had permission for residential units.

The scheme is designed to create an exciting workplace by combining traditional workplace qualities with new ways of working. The design allows for discreet office suites and/or floors but also collaborative working spaces. The key feature is a new atrium/courtyard space with a glazed roof which provides a dynamic break out area.
