The £40m Dandara private rental sector apartment scheme is part of the Arena Central regeneration development in the heart of Birmingham city centre. The mixed-use scheme comprises two towers of 21 and 25 storeys which will accommodate 322 apartments, 7,245 sq. ft. of commercial units and almost 500 spaces for cars, motorbikes and cycles.
BWB Consulting have delivered multi-disciplinary engineering and environmental consultancy services for the project including structural, geotechnical and civil engineering and been responsible for the production of a transport assessment. Our structural engineering team have designed the substructure and RC insitu superstructure, facing the challenges of the close proximity of a live Network Rail tunnel which required close coordination with other disciplines to achieve the most economical solution.
