Snow Hill, Birmingham


RPS provided Mechanical and Electrical designs for an executive office development, considered to be one of the largest city centre redevelopment schemes in Birmingham.

The scheme includes high quality office accommodation, plus retail use at ground level and features two towers containing residential apartments and a hotel, arranged around new landscaped squares, boulevards and piazzas.

The development consists of three main buildings. Buildings 1 and 2 form the executive office development, and Building 3 is the hotel and residential section. RPS were involved with the design for Building 1, providing Building Services Engineering services. We were responsible for the detailed design of the Mechanical & Electrical Services for Building 1 through to RIBA stage F2.

Building 1 consists of 11 storeys of office accommodation (30,000m2), ground floor retail, three floors of basement car parking, plus two levels of plant space at roof level.
