Work restarts on controversial apartment block
WORK has restarted on a controversial residential project in a popular Birmingham suburb after the contractor went into liquidation.
Construction workers building the new “Moseley Central” apartment block were forced to down tools after Brindley Construction went into voluntary liquidation.
But Birmingham Properties Group, the developer behind the scheme, said it had now installed an in-house team at the site in Alcester Road to finish the job.
It comprises 46 apartments ranging from studios to three bedrooms, ground-floor commercial units and 32 parking spaces. The building itself is largely complete with work now focusing on the internal fit-out of the apartments.
John Southall, a director of Bir- mingham Properties Group, said: “We can confirm that Brindley Construction, the contractor at our Moseley Central scheme, has gone into voluntary liquidation due to problems arising on other sites not connected to this scheme.
“We have taken swift measures to put a new in-house team in place, resulting in a small delay to our construction timeline.”
