Midlands site visits: two key developments in the area

Midlands site visits
The Midlands site visits include the new Three Chamberlain Square next to Birmingham Town Hall

Members in the Midlands can now book for two site visits showing key developments in the area.

In Birmingham, a tour of Three Chamberlain Square is planned for 1 February. This is the next building to be delivered in the Paradise redevelopment, sitting alongside the grade-I listed Birmingham Town Hall.

The design is targeted to make the building aesthetically pleasing and focuses on a low-carbon and low-energy build. The external design will complement the surroundings, with active frontages on all sides and an extensive new public realm.

Attendees will hear from the team about the development to date, tour the site and have the opportunity to network with the CIOB Birmingham Hub committee and fellow members.

Over in Nottingham, members can learn more about modern methods of construction (MMC) at the Vistry Works East Midlands Factory on 16 January. Reopened in July 2023, the 33,000 sq m facility has the capacity to deliver in excess of 6,000 homes per year.

The new MMC facility will supply new homes with open panel frames for Vistry Group’s mixed-tenure Countryside Partnerships and housebuilding businesses and will facilitate the delivery of homes to meet the Future Homes Standard which comes into operation in 2025.

Attendees will tour the factory and Innovation House and hear from factory director Paul Bilbie about the facility and the benefits of MMC.
