CBRE Investment Management has announced that its back to the frame transformation of 10 Brindleyplace has been awarded a string of certifications – including being named Birmingham’s first office building to receive Fitwel accreditation – a standard that measures occupant health and wellbeing.
Birmingham’s largest office refurbishment scheme, 10 Brindleyplace has achieved the following market-leading certificates:
- EPC A rating
- BREEAM Excellent
- Fitwel 2 Stars
- WiredScore Platinum
Nick White, Director at CBRE Investment Management said: “The refurbishment of 10 Brindleyplace has always been about creating office space fit for today and the future needs of our occupiers. These certifications align with our focus on sustainability, wellness and technology and we will be delivering office accommodation that sets new standards in the Birmingham office market.”
The scheme, due to complete next month, will see the creation of 210,000 sq ft of high-quality grade A office space, with one of Birmingham’s largest available office floorplates, at over 27,000 sq ft.
The former home of NatWest is being transformed, with a new, modern façade, generous double height reception space accessed from both Oozells Square and Broad Street, and large modern open plan office floors with floor to ceiling height windows.
Occupier amenities will include an on-site café; fitness facilities including a bouldering wall and fitness studio; extensive roof terraces; cycle storage for 100 bicycles; and electric vehicle charging. The new West Midlands Metro runs directly past the building, with a new stop being created opposite its Broad Street entrance.
The works are being project managed by Workman; CBRE and Savills are acting as joint agents for the office space.
