An iconic sculpture has been unveiled to mark the completion of an innovative Birmingham office building.
Developed by Barberry, the 92,500 sq ft B1 at Summer Hill provides employment for more than 1,100 people.
The six metre high work of art stands at the forefront of the building. It was designed by Stourbridge-based sculptor Harry Seager to symbolise the nearby Jewellery Quarter.
It symbolises a bird soaring - to indicate a spirit of optimism about the area.
Service Birmingham, the joint venture company established between Birmingham City Council and the Capita Group, which moved in this summer, employs 550, while Nestor Healthcare and the NHS, who have been in occupation two years, between them employ about 550.
Jon Bellfield, a director of Barberry, said: "Service Birmingham relocated from a number of sites around the city to B1 and with the amount of residential development taking place in the area there are opportunities for people to both live and work in the Jewellery Quarter."
Jewellery Quarter Regeneration Partnership operations director Andy Munro said: "We were very encouraged to see Barberry invest in the site because it is a key gateway into the quarter that badly needed regeneration.
"The development has created a substantial number of jobs which is excellent news for both the local economy and local community in terms of employment."
He added that the sculpture was the latest piece of public art to highlight the quality of the Jewellery Quarter and added to its growing public art trail.
Barberry sold the B1 investment this summer to British Airways Pension Trust and the sculpture completes the development.
