BWB MAKES AWARDS SHORTLIST FOR NEW HSBC HEADQUARTERS
15 September 2017
BWB has been shortlisted for a prestigious industry award for our engineering input on the new HSBC headquarters in Birmingham city centre.
We’ve been named as finalists in the Commercial or Retail Structures category at the IStructE Midland Counties Regional Group awards for our work on the 11-storey building which is currently under construction.
Located on the site of the former Carlton Television studios, the 210,000 sq ft building forms the first phase of the 9.2-acre Arena Central development and will see the transfer of the bank’s retail headquarters from London to the Midlands.
BWB has been involved in the project since 2015, providing professional engineering services for structural and civil design, surveying and demolition. We also led the successful Network Rail and highways negotiations.
BWB’s project lead Vikki Klette, said: “We are delighted to have been involved in this high-profile development in the heart of Birmingham and we’re thrilled that our response to the challenges have been recognised by the region’s professional institution.”
The winners will be announced at a ceremony at The Council House in Birmingham on October 5th.
