Retail Pod, Star City, Birmingham
ABR awarded to construct new 3,000 sq.ft oval shaped retail unit under a full design and build contract at the entrance to the existing retail park at Star City, Birmingham.
Given that the design of this building is oval shaped and its location being at the entrance of the existing retail park, it proved to be one of the most challenging builds we have undertaken in recent years.
The works consisted of: diverting all existing incoming live services to the centre, including water, electric, gas, etc, whilst keeping the centre trading; pile foundations were installed in areas to a depth of between 15-17 meters; structural steel frame; along with faceted glazed walling system and curved cladding panels.
The project was completed on time and on budget with all parties involved acknowledging the effort and expertise required throughout the build to ensure Abr achieved the overall objective of delivering a complex build that was a true reflection of that of the original concept design.
