Bouygues secure three projects in Birmingham

Bouygues has secured three projects in Birmingham through the Constructing West Midlands framework.

Birmingham City Council has appointed the construction company as the main contractor to transform Centenary Square in the heart of the city centre with a value of £10M.

The revamped square will provide a new destination for the Midland Metro and include a water feature, plus 43 lighting columns standing at 25 metres in height.

The Council has also selected Bouygues to replace the structural cladding on the Elms Farm Primary School in Sheldon.

The third project comes from the University of Birmingham, who handed the company a £5.5M contract to refurbish the university’s current facilities to provide teaching space for the Psychology and Brain Dependency unit.

Craig Tatton, Bouygues UK’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “Birmingham is currently undergoing significant regeneration and we are pleased to continue to be part of the major improvements going on across the city by delivering the public realm redevelopment at Centenary Square.

“We are also thrilled to be undertaking our first project with the University of Birmingham and continuing our work in the education sector through the refurbishments of its facilities in Edgbaston, as well as a separate project with the Elms Farm Primary School.”
