Stortford Interiors are proud to announce that we have recently secured another major drywall project at One Centenary Way, Birmingham for Main Contractor Sir Robert McAlpine. The project represents the latest building at Paradise, Birmingham, and the first part of Phase Two of the development.
The 280,000 sq ft, thirteen-storey building will overlook the transformed Centenary Square which, with its unique, exposed steel frame, will provide a striking visual gateway to Paradise and a new landmark for the city. Designed by Birmingham-based Glenn Howells Architects, One Centenary Way incorporates three-metre wide horizontal windows, encased within an exposed structural steel façade. The innovative, structural-led design is a response to the complex site location above the A38 Queensway tunnels which will remain open throughout the construction process. The building will offer large office floorplates of up to 22,500 sq ft as well as retail space at ground floor level.
The appointment will see Stortford Interiors and their Midlands Business Unit deliver another multi-million pound package in the heart of Birmingham that includes performance steel beam and column encasements, a variety of shaftwall and drywall constructions, polished plasters, proprietary ceilings membranes (including fabric, metal pan and glass-wool), plasterboard margins and associated blind box detailing.
Scott Shearing (Managing Director) stated: ‘This award further consolidates our position in the Midlands as a Tier One major projects contractor and represents another significant project win within Birmingham. The structure of the building and surrounding infrastructure will provide numerous logistical and technical challenges and we look forward to delivering a successful regional scheme for a longstanding Client’.
