Birmingham’s landmark building fronting Great Charles Street Queensway
Planned Preventative Maintenance
2 year contract
145 Great Charles Street, Birmingham B3 3LP
Based in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, since it’s build in 1930, this Grade A office building has offered a prime location with spectacular views of Birmingham’s historic skyline across its 8 floors.
In 2015, having been acquired by a new landlord, the building was fully refurbished to bring it up to date whilst taking care to maintain and enhancing some of its 1930s features with tenants now benefiting from contemporary and modern workspace suites.
Included within the refurbishment was the inclusion of a 1,800 sq ft roof terrace on the seventh floor, creating a private and spacious outdoor area for use by building occupiers.
As well as the roof terrace tenants also benefit from facilities including, on-site parking, shower and locker facilities, bike storage, L&G lighting, VRF cooling and concierge services.
