Perry Barr – Plots 8 & 9 Birmingham, UK


Willmott Dixon Construction





Working closely with Willmott Dixon Construction, Lendlease and Birmingham City Council, we have successfully made Plots 8 and 9 of the wider, high profile, redevelopment masterplan a reality.

Appointed from RIBA Stage 3, Corstorphine & Wright redesigned the scheme to make the plots
more efficient, affordable, and more appealing. We have increased the number of units from 300 to 430 apartments.

Key Facts:

  • Split over 2 neighbouring plots
  • 430 apartments across 4 blocks, arranged around 2 central landscaped courtyards.
  • Maximised efficiency by increasing the scheme by 50% with Lendlease
  • Accommodating as much off-site manufacture to protect the programme
  • Provision of affordable and accessible units at ground level across both plots
  • Completed to BIM Level 2 standards

The main challenge on this project was to bring in key supply chain partners on structure, envelope, and toilet pods to ensure as much off-site manufacture as possible to protect the programme as much as we could, whilst protecting the design presented to planners.

In addition, with a simpler assembly method, less people were required on site, meaning less people have been put at risk by allowing easier adherence to social distancing measures during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Both adjacent plots are designed to wrap around a secure central, landscaped, courtyard garden for residents to break out into and adding to a sense of identity and community.

The development forms part of a wider £700m redevelopment to the Perry Barr area that includes improvements to public transport, walking and cycling routes, new community facilities and public spaces.

Every project starts with a conversation.
