Arena Central Birmingham Public Realm
Fitzgerald Contractors secured an infrastructure contract at the Arena Central development in the heart of Birmingham. The company delivered hard and soft landscaping works to form public realm areas, utilising high-specification materials including granite which was imported from China.
The works form part of the wider £400 million Arena Central Development which will see the construction of 220,000 sq ft office building for HSBC bank and the regeneration of the surrounding area.
Situated within the city centre Enterprise Zone, Arena Central is bordered by Broad Street, Bridge Street, Holliday Street and Suffolk Street Queensway and is adjacent to Centenary Square, one of Birmingham’s most high-profile public spaces which is undergoing a comprehensive £7 million public realm contract which Fitzgerald Contractors successfully delivered in 2019.
The extension to the Midland Metro tram, work on which is already underway, will include a stop on Broad Street, directly adjacent to the Arena Central site, further enhancing the site’s connectivity to the rest of the city.
