Three Snowhill has been described as the gateway to Birmingham’s business district and has been compared to London’s Canary Wharf. This regeneration project was originally set out to attract new enterprise and support the growth of existing small businesses. As the second largest city in the United Kingdom, Birmingham needs to ensure it is accommodating advancements in business and new ways of working.
The 17 story glass-clad structure has full height windows and will be a spectacular addition to the skyline as well as providing spectacular views across the city. The development is well underway and T-T have been selected to provide a range of drainage systems to allow this building to operate effectively. A specific requirement of the project is to provide 32,000 square meters for high-quality office space which is energy efficient and sustainable.
