The £2.5 million Cat-A fit out and refurbishment of a 25,000 sq ft 11-storey office in Birmingham’s Southside has been completed for Paloma Capital by Willmott Dixon.
Phil Crowther from Willmott Dixon said: “We are very pleased to have completed the Cat-A fit out and refurbishment of the Southside Building. It’s always pleasing to deliver a successful project of this scale but especially so given the challenges presented by maintaining social distancing measures in a fully occupied building.
“The building provides a tremendous opportunity for occupiers seeking smaller or co-working space in an excellent business location, within easy reach of Birmingham’s city core. It’s one of the first offices of its kind to be refurbished in the area and it’s done so at a really exciting time.”
The programme of works has seen improvements made to common areas and vacant office suites which have been comprehensively stripped out and refurbished, to create stylish contemporary spaces. The first floor has been reconfigured, providing several new features including an occupier’s kitchen, break out space, touch down working areas and a boardroom complete with video conferencing facilities. Specially designed Zoom booths, an outdoor terrace and event space have also been included in the new layouts.
The exterior of the building, which is located next door to Birmingham Hippodrome, has been partially reclad, and retail units have received modern new frontages. A ground floor coffee shop provides an internal link to an enhanced and reconfigured design-led reception, whilst tenants will benefit from new bicycle storage with shower and changing facilities.
Willmott Dixon worked alongside consultants from Whitman Wilde, Quantum Consulting and Malcolm Hollis on the project.
