An elegant façade will enclose the curvaceous eight-storey One Chamberlain Square – the first building being delivered at the £700m Paradise scheme in the heart of Birmingham.
Designed by Eric Parry Architects for development manager Argent, the building responds to its historical and cultural settings. The Grade A One Chamberlain Square will offer 150,000 sq ft of office space fitted with floor to ceiling glazing, and 22,000 sq ft of ground floor restaurant and retail uses.
The complex façade incorporates polished precast, antique bronze-framed shop fronts at ground level and extensive glazing with vertical terracotta fins to the upper office accommodation level.
Wintech are delivering Façade Consultancy services to see that the façade meets the Employer’s performance requirements whilst maintaining the innovative architectural intent. Facade Contractor Inasus provided the unitised curtain walling and are also working on the ground floor and shop fronts.
Completion of this project is scheduled for early 2019.
