Commercial projects specialist Adonis Construction is transforming a brownfield site in the heart of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter into state-of-the-art offices.
The Midlands-based construction firm has been awarded a £1.65 million contract by Strawberry Developments to build a four-storey scheme on Caroline Street.
The 16,000sq ft complex, called Caroline Point, will comprise 14 self-contained offices, ranging in size from 645sq ft to 1,249 sq ft, with views over the city centre and nearby St Paul's Square.
Cyril Ghent, Adonis Construction project manager, said: "Caroline Point is in a prime business location and our team has worked hard to ensure that the development not only provides outstanding commercial premises, but also enhances its surroundings," said Mr Ghent.
"As with any city centre build, space is also at a premium and in partnership with Malcolm Payne Group, the architects responsible for designing the building, we've successfully developed a number of innovative solutions to maximise the site's potential."
The scheme includes a racked car parking system. Vehicles are driven onto a parking rack located on the ground floor of the building and then automatically slotted into available spaces.
"This will be one of the first buildings in Birmingham to feature racked car parking and it's an excellent way of
maximising space and getting vehicles off the street," added Mr Ghent.
Caroline Point is Strawberry Developments second project in Birmingham and it is due for completion in the autumn.
Andy Keys, managing director of Strawberry Developments, said: "We aim to deliver character developments that stand out from the crowd and Caroline Point is no exception. We are delighted with the progress achieved to date. Already the building is creating a real statement and we're confident that the end result will be one we can all be proud of."
With its headquarters in the Black Country, Adonis has nearly 30 years' experience in the construction sector and a turnover of £40 million.
