The safe, fast and dimensionally accurate precast solution
Birmingham’s 17 acre Paradise Circus redevelopment project features PCE Ltd’s hybrid structure, which will provide a suspended car park level below a podium level that will form the ground floor of two new office buildings, Number 1 and Number 2, Chamberlin Square.
Being constructed in association with main contractors Carillion, the development will feature over 2,500 precast concrete and structural steel components which have been manufactured offsite.
They are currently being erected by PCE’s highly qualified on site team to form the hybrid structure which is being delivered on a design and build basis.
The lift and stair cores are being constructed with PCE’s Prefastcore® system which provides a safe, fast and dimensionally accurate solution for the construction, with precast concrete columns, beams, walls, prestressed hollowcore flooring and steel Delta Beam units provide the structural hybrid frame solution with insitu concrete being used where necessary to facilitate structural connections.
Vibrant mixed use development
According to the Paradise Birmingham website this will be “The most important city centre development in the UK outside of London.”
“Paradise is to be transformed into a vibrant mixed use development of commercial, civic, retail, leisure and hotel space, providing major improvements to pedestrian access and greatly enhanced public realm befitting this exemplary historic setting.”
