Top honour won by new council building

Another accolade has been added to Birmingham City Council’s awards portfolio for its recently-opened Woodcock Street building.

The project was recognised by the Office Agent Society (OAS) as ‘Best Development outside of Central London’ during a ceremony on Friday (May 19).

10 Woodcock Street, located next to Aston University, provides in the region of 18,500 m2 (net) of flexible office accommodation over five floors and will become the base for over 3,000 Birmingham City Council employees once fully operational.

Opened in October 2011, the £38million workplace provides an enhanced working environment, supporting new ways of working to improve customer service for the citizens of Birmingham.

Stephen Hughes, Chief Executive of Birmingham City Council, said: “This award truly reflects the hard work that has gone into planning, developing and building a workplace that not only contributes to substantial savings for the council but also provides employees with a modern and spacious workplace enabling them to improve services delivered to the people of Birmingham.”

The new workplace at 10 Woodcock Street is the latest addition to the Council’s property portfolio as part of a rationalisation and improvement programme which is set to deliver £100million in savings over 25 years.
