Crowngate, Birmingham City Centre (phase two)

As part of a framework agreement (EEM0028) with Efficiency East Midlands (EEM) and in conjunction with housing organisation, Midland Heart, Hodgson Sayers was appointed to undertake pitched roof replacements to a further 112 apartments as part of phase two of the project.

A progressive project which has seen a varied team work on the external fabric as the scaffold has enveloped the structure.


  • To replace the existing Spanish slate roof covering with a Redland Cambrian slate specification offering a very high resistance to storm damage
  • A mechanical hoist was used to transport goods across the eight-storey building
  • Due to limited space within the car park timed deliveries were necessary
  • The new roofing structure is very robust, is thermally more efficient
  • From phase one of the project, residents have been kept up-to-date with the progress and prior to the project commencing letters were sent to homes to inform people about the work.
