Park Central

Birmingham, England

Estate regeneration is being driven towards higher densities that are best achieved through bespoke design. Park Central achieves this whilst addressing the key issues of tenure integration, transport, community involvement and mixed-use. It also establishes a highly successful parkland – a rare commodity in a City Centre location.

From the efficient use of prefabricated components in construction to the responsible management of natural resources in operation, the development established its green credentials with an ‘Excellent’ ECO Homes rating and an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating.
