Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

A CON­SUL­TANCY has be­come one of the first firms to take space in a newly re­fur­bished Birm­ing­ham city cen­tre of­fice block.

Ram­boll, the in­ter­na­tional de­sign, en­gi­neer­ing and en­vi­ron­men­tal con­sul­tancy, has agreed a ten-year deal to take 8,055 sq ft of space at the Cornerblock com­plex on the cor­ner of Corn­wall Street and Liv­ery Street.

Pre­vi­ously called Two Corn­wall Street, owner Brunt­wood car­ried out a £14 mil­lion re­de­vel­op­ment and re­brand of the nine­storey build­ing which com­pleted in July.

Ram­boll has re­lo­cated its 100-strong team from Water­loo Street where they will join ten­ants such as spe­cial­ist in­sur­ance com­pany Bea­z­ley and en­gi­neer­ing con­sul­tancy Ar­cadis.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Mathew Ri­ley said: “The Mid­lands re­gion is a strate­gi­cally im­por­tant lo­ca­tion in our growth plans and we are ex­cited to have se­cured a space which gives us head­room for fur­ther ex­pan­sion.

“With so many op­por­tu­ni­ties aris­ing across Birm­ing­ham and the sur­round­ing ar­eas, we are pleased to be of­fer­ing a strong mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary lo­cal team of en­gi­neers, sci­en­tists, project man­agers and con­sul­tants, work­ing across the build­ings, trans­port and en­vi­ron­men­tal mar­kets.”

Rob Valen­tine, Brunt­wood’s di­rec­tor for Birm­ing­ham, added: “We are happy to wel­come a com­pany of Ram­boll’s cal­i­bre on board.

“In the few months since prac­ti­cal com­ple­tion, we have seen our cus­tomer com­mu­nity grow con­sid­er­ably and we con­tinue to in­vest in an in­no­va­tive high-qual­ity work­ing en­vi­ron­ment here at Cornerblock.”
