Project name: Coroner's Court Refurbishment
Client: Birmingham City Council
M&E Order Value: £460,000
Contractor: GF Tomlinson
Consultant: Reeves Associates
Contract Length: 6 months
This challenging project in Birmingham City Centre comprised the refurbishment and conversion of the former Youth Court building on Steelhouse Lane to provide the Coroners Service with 3 courts, front facing public facilities and back of house offices, meeting rooms and welfare facilities.
The project team was able to deliver the sectional refurbishment of a listed building where existing systems and structures were being retained. Due to tight budgetary constraints a number of existing systems had to be brought back online, this in itself was a challenge as the building had been unoccupied for a number of years and the services had not been in use.
Wherever possible we serviced and retained existing systems minimise the cost and carbon footprint.
