BIRMINGHAM'S JEWELLERY QUARTER

Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter is next to the city centre and is the centre for jewellery production in the city; it still produces approx. 40% of the UK's jewellery. There are many historic buildings in the area, and more recently it has become a focus for residential developments aimed mainly at young professionals.

In 1773 the Assay Office was created to test and hallmark precious metal items and currently a new Assay Office is being built, shown in the following photo:-

The next photo shows two ongoing developments near to the new Assay office, which are the Metalworks and the Mediaworks. The Metalworks is on the left and is a residential apartment development, and the Mediaworks is on the right which is an office development.

BRINDLEY PLACE

Five Brindley Place is now occupied by Deutsche Bank who have led the way in establishing a provincial city base in England and relocating staff from London. From employing no-one in Birmingham in 2006 they are now upping their headcount towards 2,000, and transferring not just back office roles but some front-office roles as well.

Quote:
City's immense talent pool 'exciting factor' in Deutsche Bank deal

Choice to come to Birmingham was more than just about property says business partner who conducted hunt for new home

One of the senior figures behind Deutsche Bank's decision to move to Brindleyplace said she was excited by the 'immense talent pool' among Birmingham's graduates and professionals and this helped to cement the decision to take a base here.

Kathryn Harrison, UKMEA business partner and a member of the team which conducted a review of its global operations, also said the bank was able to feel like "more than just an employer" here as it prepares to open a massive new operation.

The German bank, which currently has staff based in Baskerville House and One Brindleyplace, is due to move into 134,000 sq ft of office space in Five Brindleyplace in July after signing a 15-year deal to take the entire building.

The deal is expected to double its 1,000-strong workforce in the city, a stark contrast from the 30 staff it had when it launched here in 2006.

She said: "What's exciting about Birmingham is the talent pool here. When we looked into what's actually available in the market, we were really surprised by the quality and depth of the skill sets we could tap into.

"Five Brindleyplace is effectively an integrated service centre for us so we're looking for legal, financial, engineering and IT skills - the full spectrum of things which would support a large investment bank.

"We've been very successful in hiring for our trading function and we will be the largest trading bank in Birmingham.

"One of the really nice things is we're managing to attract the city's alumni which, maybe historically, has had to leave Birmingham for places like London to have those careers in the financial services.

"It's really exciting to be attracting that alumni back so we've got this immense talent pool at a price point the bank can find sustainable long term which is very important."

The 'fins' are made from copper. Here are some more details:-

Quote:
Optima Shingles manufactured by Sotech to form part of the Barclaycard Arena transformation

Sotech have provided over 9500no Copper Shingles to the new Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, in a renovation that has cost £26 million over the last 2 years.

The Optima Shingle system was manufactured from 0.7mm material, using a special 2-layer Fluoropolymer coating system which preserves the original copper look and offers the façade more depth and shine.

Part of Birmingham City Council’s ‘Big City’ Plan, the venue previously known as the National Indoor Arena (or NIA) has been redeveloped to help position Birmingham as the UK’s second city.

Improving customer experience has been at the heart of the arena’s transformation, and the redevelopment was initiated as a direct response to customer feedback.

The most notable aspect of the newly designed arena is a new glass façade juxtaposed with Sotech’s striking copper shingles, which overlooks the canal side of the building and is fast becoming an iconic focal point in the city itself.

The NIA has become one of the busiest large scale indoor sporting and entertainment venues in Europe since it opened in 1991, and attracts up to a million visitors a year, and it has recently undergone such a dramatic renovation and increase in size of almost 6000m2 in order to maintain that world class status.
