Bam Construction has been appointed as the main contractor on the £80m 103 Colmore Row office tower in Birmingham.
Rockspring Property Investment Managers and Sterling Property Ventures chosen Bam to deliver the 26-storey building, which is described as the highest tower currently being built outside London.
The building will contain 223,631 sq ft of office space over 20 floors, as well as 7,665 sq ft for restaurants on the ground and top floor.
Designed by architects Doone Silver Kerr, the tower also features a winter garden, 18th floor terrace and multi-purpose lobby business lounges.
Bam will start work on the building’s main substructure in early June and is due to complete the project in the third quarter of 2020.
This marks property investment manager Rockspring’s second development in Birmingham, having also developed private rental scheme The Forum in the Southside area of the city.
The contractor’s Midlands regional director Rod Stiles said: “Bam is engaged on about one quarter of a billion pounds of commercial developments within half a mile of each other in Birmingham’s central business district.
“We’ve been working with our partners at Sterling and Rockspring already and are keen to start what will be a memorable addition to Birmingham’s real estate.”
