Brief insight into the team’s recent successes
PBA’s Birmingham Infrastructure team has been going from strength to strength since the team was established 4 years ago. A number of exciting and challenging schemes have helped the team to grow to its current size, creating a solid base for future growth and diversification.
One of the most significant schemes over this period has been the design and construction of the highway changes associated with the Paradise development in central Birmingham. Following on from providing transport planning services to achieve successful planning application, we were engaged to provide fully detailed designs for all highway works, including pavement design, drainage, retaining structures, access to utility tunnels and buried plantrooms, lighting, signals and so forth. We assisted the developer in tendering the works, and then administered the NEC3 contract on behalf of the client. This £13M scheme has proved the catalyst for the wider £600M development scheme, which is continuing at pace. Due to our knowledge, we continue to advise the client on the development proposals where these interface with the highway and a proposed metro scheme.
Other schemes that continue to push our expertise include a new relief road in the Midlands, including a major bridge and viaduct totalling some 900m spanning a major river and associated floodplain, to support a major new Garden Village development.
We do, however, not just restrict ourselves to traditional highway schemes in the UK. Other just as exciting and challenging schemes included design work for Cycle Revolution schemes in both Birmingham and Glasgow, balancing the needs and desires of both cyclists and motorists. And then there are high-powered pursuits including Driver Experience Centres and motorsport venues in both the UK and overseas. Working closely with designers in the UK and overseas we provide all engineering and design support to create unique and exhilarating destinations.
