One Chamberlain Square façade approaches completion

December 2018

Eric Parry Architects won a competition in 2014 to design the first building at Paradise, Birmingham. Our proposal at One Chamberlain Square has led to the creation of an exemplar modern commercial building that both reflects and complements the historic civic space in which it is set. This seven storey, 172,000 sq ft office building has retail on the ground floor with office space above. The whole of the commercial space is let to international professional services firm PwC who will move their 1,400 strong team into the building in 2019 to create a new regional headquarters.

4 Pancras Square wins BREEAM 2018 Award

March 2018

4 Pancras Square has been awarded BREEAM’s Commercial Project – Post-Construction Award 2018. It was the first UK office building to be awarded 'Outstanding' under BREEAM 2014, with the score of 88.1%, the highest scoring final certificate awarded to a new office development. The judges agreed it provides an exemplary demonstration of the value of feedback loops in design and procurement. This inherently complex project has been taken through a process of learning from earlier projects to push boundaries further forward and upwards.

The building delivered for Argent in June 2017 and currently being fitted out as the new headquarters for Universal Music has many substantial environmental features that combined with a generous roof garden puts the wellbeing of its users at the heart of its design.
