Eastside Locks, Birmingham

Alumno Developments

Alumno Developments is investing £30 million to deliver a canalside scheme at Eastside Locks, which will be one of the first prominent buildings visitors see as they arrive at the proposed HS2 Curzon Street Station.

This Eastside Locks Scheme will comprise the construction of 659 student rooms together with all associated ancillary facilities, ground floor retail unit, business incubation units and external works. The accommodation is provided in two blocks of nine stories and a final tower block of 17 stories.

DBK is heavily involved in this project, acting as project managers, cost managers and principal designers from inception to completion on what promises to be a student housing scheme to compete with any other.

RPS acquired DBK Ltd in April 2016.
