Southside Building, Birmingham

Cat A fit-out and refurbishment of commercial office space at Southside building, formerly Albany House

Project Stats

18 weeks
£2.5 m
25,316 sq ft

Project Story

Formerly known as Albany House the 11-storey, 51,000 sq ft office building received a £2.5 million package of improvement. Drawing on the buildings mid-century heritage the works included comprehensive internal strip-out and refurbishment of common areas and vacant office suites, creating stylish contemporary circulation spaces.

The office area on the first floor has been reconfigured to provide a combination of flexible co-working space, smaller cellular offices and open-plan suites, along with a bookable meeting room and break out area.

The exterior of the building has had a partial reclad with the retail units fronting Hurst Street receiving new frontages. A coffee shop unit now links internally to the enhanced and reconfigured reception, and tenants will benefit from new bike storage and shower facilities.

Prominently positioned on Hurst Street and just a few minutes’ walk from New Street Station, the Southside Building represents the leading commercial opportunity in that part of the city for occupiers seeking smaller or co-working space within easy access of the city core.
Key Outcomes
  • Works completed within a fully occupied building
  • Stylish contemporary circulation spaces
  • Reclad to exterior building
  • Competed within Covid-19 social distancing measures
