The third and final phase of Birmingham’s Snowhill development – Three Snowhill – is set to start in September after developer Ballymore Properties appointed BAM Construction as its preferred contractor.
The final phase of the Snowhill estate, which has already attracted world class, blue chip occupiers to its first two phases which are fully occupied, is expected to cost approximately £90 million.
It forms part of Birmingham’s 20 year master plan for redeveloping Snowhill known as “Vision 2030”.
BAM will be remodelling the existing five levels of basement and cores which serve all three phases, creating office, leisure and conference space and car parking.
Above ground it will be a steel framed office tower with curtain walling to all elevations with 17 levels of high quality office space and two levels of plant room.
The fully curtain walled 32,000 square metre development is targeting BREEAM Excellent under the 2014 regulations and has an EPC rating of at least B.
Richard Probert, Ballymore Project Director, said: “Three Snowhill has now been awarded detailed planning consent and we look forward to starting on site shortly.
“It is the final component in what has become a land mark gateway development for our City – changing the skyline and setting new standards for regional office development.”
