PreFastCore lift and stair cores for hybrid construction project in Birmingham

PCE Ltd are currently working on Birmingham’s 17 acre Paradise Circus redevelopment project with a contract value approaching £5 million to design and build a two storey hybrid structural frame at the city centre location.

“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”, according to the Paradise Birmingham website.

“Paradise will be one of the biggest development schemes Birmingham has seen for a generation and will dramatically transform this whole area of the city.”

Hybrid structure

The hybrid structure 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.

The lift and stair cores are being constructed with PCE’s Prefastcore system providing a safe, fast and dimensionally accurate solution for their construction.

PreFastCore, available from PCE Ltd, is the ideal system for constructing structural lift, stair and combined lift and stair cores, using offsite engineered precast concrete modular units, providing rapid and safe on site erection to full height.
