City Centre House

  • City Centre House

    Speller Metcalfe has been contracted to deliver a complete refurbishment of an existing BHS store on the high profile location of New Street in Birmingham to shell standard.

    The three storey refurbishment is the first phase of multiple works scheduled to take place along New Street. Internally this incorporates a complete strip out of the existing space and internal reconfiguration followed by new lifts, stair core, flooring and M&E.

    Externally, the team will be removing an existing reinforced concrete canopy and shop front and replacing this with two-storey structural glazing, held in place by stainless steel spiders.

    The process will be particularly complex due to the demolition of the central concrete canopy and pedestrian high street location.
