Six in for £90m Birmingham Post and Mail redevelopment

At least six contractors have submitted tenders for the first phase of a £90 million project to redevelop Birmingham’s Post and Mail offices.

Bam Construct, Morgan Sindall, Thomas Vale, Skanska and Vinci are in the hunt a £20m contract for the initial tranche of work which includes the partial demolition of the former Birmingham Post and Mail offices and print works in Weaman Street, Construction News understands.

New levels would be inserted into the basement to create a 800-space car park with a new, two-storey building above it.

This would accommodate the car park access, egress points, toilets, customer service facilities, retail units and an entrance for Phase 2 of the project.

Developer Chatham Billingham, run by directors Mark Billingham and Alan Chatham, bought the site in 2009.

Phase two of the project would see a 235 metre building sitting atop phase one.

Work on phase one of the scheme could start as early as May this year.
