Date 12 Jul 2018

Galliford Try has been awarded another major contract in central Birmingham, with the announcement it will build the £43m ‘Axium’ residential development at Windmill Hill in the city in partnership with developer Court Collaboration and Top Capital Group.

The scheme is being built on brownfield land to the rear of the 02 Academy close to Birmingham city centre and will see the creation of 304 new luxury apartments across three blocks, with associated car parking and landscaping.

Galliford Try is already heavily involved in central Birmingham, constructing commercial offices at One and Three Centenary Square, and a build-to-rent scheme at Arena Central for Dandara, as well as a new hotel and conference centre for the University of Birmingham in Edgbaston.

Anthony McCourt, CEO of Court Collaboration commented: “We are delighted to be working with Galliford Try at The Axium. This development is truly special in that the specification internally and externally are first-rate for the City Centre and we are delighted we’ve chosen such a credible and well-placed contractor such as Galliford Try to bring this quality to life. We are excited too about what this scheme will bring to the wider Lee Bank area when it’s finished”.

Simon Burton, Managing Director for Galliford Try West Midlands and South West, said: “We are very pleased to have reached agreement with Court and Top Capital Group for this exciting new residential scheme. The centre of Birmingham is alive with regeneration projects at the moment, and these new high quality apartments will be at the heart of what is a genuinely vibrant city.”
