The third of three steel-framed office blocks in Snowhill, Birmingham, and one of the UK’s largest speculative office developments to be constructed outside of London, is rapidly taking shape.
Sat next to its sister buildings, One and Two Snowhill, Three Snowhill is a 19-storey office tower that forms a stunning gateway to the city’s business district, completing the final phase of Ballymore’s Snowhill Estate development.
Offering nearly 38,000m² of BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rated Grade A office floor space, together with retail and leisure units at podium and ground floor levels, Three Snowhill, like its sister buildings, has a composite design comprising a steel frame with cellular beams supporting metal decking.
Working on behalf of main contractor BAM Construction, Severfield is fabricating, supplying and erecting some 4,500t of steel for this project.
The building wraps around a large central atrium, which allows plenty of natural light to penetrate the building’s inner areas as it is topped with a glazed roof.
This glazing also spans over the double-height upper floor, creating a large light-filled breakout space.
