Transforming a disused tower block into much-needed temporary accommodation for up to 160 families for Birmingham City Council.
Originally earmarked for demolition, the work involved a full back-to-frame strip-out of the tower, and has brought the 1970s building up to modern standards. It now provides 17 floors of accommodation, two recreational floors and one management office floor.
Up to date life saving equipment was badly needed due to the buildings height, occupation density and recent changes in regulations.
Fire safety equipment has been installed throughout, including sprinklers, fire lifts, wet and dry risers, automatic opening ventilators, smoke extraction systems and automatic door actuators. The building also now has a stand-by generator and new water tanks.
