Work restarts on con­tro­ver­sial apart­ment block

Birmingham Post - - PROPERTY -

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.”
