Paragon puts Ramboll on fast-track to Birmingham’s first A-rated EPC building

Paragon Interiors Group Plc

Ramboll, the international design, engineering and environmental consultancy has appointed Paragon’s fast-track team to provide a CAT B refurbishment of their Birmingham office space.

Ramboll will occupy 8,055 sq ft at Bruntwood’s recently redeveloped 110,000 sq ft Cornerblock office space, in the heart of Birmingham’s Colmore Business District. This iconic building will serve as home for up to 100 Ramboll employees, representing their full range of disciplines and services.

As with many of Paragon’s recent projects in Britain’s second city, which include Pinsent Masons and Arcadis, the building boasts impressive environmental credentials and is the first building in Birmingham to have officially achieved an ‘A rated’ EPC.

It has fantastic views over the city, aided by Birmingham’s largest roof terrace, a stunning addition the city’s skyline designed to encourage collaboration and networking which Paragon has worked on for Wesleyan Assurance Society.

It also has as a raft of health and wellbeing initiatives such as a free-to-use gym, showers and secure bike storage to encourage customers to cycle to work and with offices available from 5,000 sq ft, it is proving hugely popular in attracting businesses to the Colmore Business District.

Reflecting on the move, Mathew Riley, Managing Director at Ramboll, said:

The Midlands region is a strategically important location in our growth plans and we are excited to have secured a space which gives us headroom for further expansion. With so many opportunities arising across Birmingham and the surrounding areas, we are pleased to be offering a strong multidisciplinary local team of engineers, scientists, project managers and consultants, working across the buildings, transport and environmental markets.”
