3 Arena Central, Birmingham
3 Arena Central is a 240,000 sq ft, grade A office building currently under construction at Arena Central, Birmingham’s first speculative office scheme since the recession.
The UK Government has committed to take the full 3 Arena Central building, which will sit at the heart of the nine acre mixed use regeneration site. The new Grade A, 14 floor office building will be home to 3,500 civil servants across a number of government services, including the Midlands regional hub for HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
Having already worked on the neighbouring 1 Centenary Square, Hannan Associates provided Building Services Engineering, Site Infrastructure Services & BREEAM Assessment for the scheme delivered by ACDL, a joint venture led by Kier.
The MEP services installations were designed to meet the occupiers specific requirements, which provide energy efficient installations, an excellent working environment and comfort conditions for the occupants contributing towards a BREEAM Excellent rating for the building.
We played a key role in liaising with the occupier’s technical advisors in order to obtain their specific technical requirements and ensure successful delivery of the MEP services installations, which were agreed, costed and accommodated within the building design within a very short timescale.
We were very pleased to work alongside Make Architects, Gillespies Landscape Architects, Arcadis and WSP on the design team and main contractor Galliford Try.
The Arena Central masterplan will deliver 1.2 million sq ft of mixed-use development, alongside a unique public realm designed by Make Architects that features over 50 per cent soft landscaping at the heart of Birmingham city centre, designed to meet the city’s ever growing demand of office space and residential accommodation.
