Crowngate, Birmingham City Centre

As part of a framework with housing organisation, Midlands Heart, Hodgson Sayers was appointed as main contractor to undertake a flat and pitched roof replacement within the multi-storey apartment block.

Certain elements of the building including the front facade were Grade II listed. Care had to be taken and the building had to be in keeping with its surroundings.

Objectives:

  • Resources where used from the local area
  • To replace the existing flat roof with an Icopal specified thermally efficient roof covering
  • The existing pitched roof is being replaced with Cambrian Redland slate which offers a very high resistance to storm damage
  • The team is working with the residential concierge to keep residents up-to-date with the progress. Prior to the work commencing letters were issued explaining the nature of the work and offering assurance that disruption would be minimal
