Leading radiator manufacturer Stelrad has seen its radiators specified for a landmark development in the centre of Birmingham.
When City councillors in Birmingham gave permission to developer Moda Living and Glenn Howells Architects to execute their joint vision of a 132-metre skyscraper, which would become the tallest residential building in the city they continued a trend that has seen Birmingham take the lead in developing living spaces close to the city centre. The 42-storey 2one2 Broad Street features a slim rectangular profile thrusting out of a three-storey podium set to house 3,251 square metres of retail space. It’s built on the site of the old Tramps Night Club, close to Brindley Place.
The 481-unit apartment tower, with apartments for rental only, will include a 200-metre outdoor running track on the podium roof, the first of its kind for a residential building in the United Kingdom. Nearly 3,000 square metres of communal and amenity space will be provided within the skyscraper, including a residents’ lounge, dining club area, and wellness zone. The building’s elevators will be tech-savvy, with smart elevators controlled by an app on residents’ phones.
An exterior of floor-to-ceiling windows is interlaced with an enveloping bronze veil that emphasizes the verticality of the project. Inside, units will be split into 30 studios, 163 one-bedrooms, 260 two-bedrooms and 28 three-bedroom layouts. Main contractor for the scheme is John Sisk & Son of Birmingham and M&E Consultants responsible for installation of the heating controls is Imtech Engineering Services.
481 of Stelrad’s popular Compact with Style vertical radiators adorn the walls of these exciting new apartments. Compact with Style radiators feature an attractive vertical lined casing that compliments the décor of these modern apartments to a tee.
“We’re delighted that our radiators have been selected for this landmark development in the centre of Birmingham,” said Stelrad Head of Marketing Chris Harvey. “It’s a huge building and the top floor is only a few feet below the height of the BT tower in the city which gives an idea of the height of the development. Birmingham has taken the led in the UK in bringing living space into the city centre and this new development will cement that reputation once and for all. It’s an impressive place and its good to know it will be heated courtesy of our radiators.”
