Eastside Locks – 6 Cardigan St – The Joseph Priestley Building

Constructing Excellence

Eastside is fast becoming the most developed and impressive part of Birmingham. Eastside Locks has transformed a once derelict area into a place with its own unique identity. The successful completion of 6 Cardigan St and associated infrastructure provides a catalyst for a place that is vibrant, dynamic and stimulates long-term benefits for the city and wider region. It provides a welcoming environment for people to work, live and study in a modern mixed-use sustainable community, combining the very best of urban development.

6 Cardigan St is a 4-storey office building with basement parking for 29 cars and 26 bicycles. The development utilised modern, innovative techniques and these are clearly evident in the high quality of the finished scheme. The successful integration of multiple European supply chain partners has resulted in an innovative design with a visual impact delivered within budget and to programme.

The project is an achievement in successful collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders. It has accommodated the needs of the Local Authority, neighbours, and adjacent construction sites. A best practice approach through collaborative workshops ensured that the project was delivered in line with client expectations.
