GMI provides the construction Birmingham needs to continue its ongoing regeneration. The UK’s second city, the former industrial powerhouse experienced difficult times over the course of the 20th century, with heavy bombing in WWII, the decline of the industrial revolution and increased competition for manufacturing in a globalised world all contributing. In spite of this, Birmingham has retained its position in the UK’s cultural landscape. Birmingham’s forward-thinking city-planning and diverse population mean that dynamism and progress have always been constants in the city.

In recent decades, there has been significant investment in construction in Birmingham: in urban regeneration, green spaces, new commercial centres and travel infrastructure like HS2. The Big City plan is an overarching strategic blueprint that aims to restore Birmingham to its rightful position as a world-leading urban economic centre that attracts and retains a motivated and upwardly-mobile population. It’s already working, through increased career opportunities, culturally enriching leisure pursuits and the promise of a healthier way of life.

GMI are pleased to be playing a role, through our construction services in Birmingham. With several significant construction projects past, present and future, we’re helping to reshape the skyline as well as the cultural landscape, working towards ambitions for a greener, happier and more prosperous Birmingham.

Residential Construction Services Birmingham

Constructing housing is just as important for urban regeneration as new jobs and recreation. Attracting the people that a city needs in order to thrive cannot be done without the provision of appealing accommodation in keeping with a modern, urban lifestyle. GMI provide specialist design and build capabilities for residential construction projects in Birmingham and beyond. Over the past 10 years we have created nearly 1,000 new homes in cities and towns, building communities where people want to live and work.

SETL is a great example of our construction services in Birmingham. A cutting-edge inner-city residence, this modern development of 101 top-spec apartments in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter provides modern homes and the retail space that is a key part of the area’s ongoing rejuvenation.

Commercial Construction Services Birmingham

Another cornerstone of Birmingham’s plans for a brighter future is the city’s economic output. We have worked on a number of significant commercial and industrial construction projects that contribute thousands of jobs that will help Birmingham continue to prosper as part of a connected and diverse economy.

One of these, the ASOS warehouse in Litchfield, is a state-of-the-art facility, providing 400,000sq.ft. of warehousing and an additional 30,000sq.ft. of office space. The finished project is carbon net-zero and will ultimately provide 2,000 jobs in a modern dispatch hub capable of sending out 4.5 million packages per week and generating £7 billion in annual revenue.

Student Accommodation Construction Services Birmingham

Universities play an important role in the flow of people to and from Birmingham. It’s home to five universities, a conservatoire for music and the dramatic arts, and the oldest graduate-level business school in the UK. Birmingham retains 49 per cent of its total new graduate, one of the highest retention rates in the UK.

Providing quality student accommodation helps contribute to Birmingham’s long-term prospects. GMI has the local experience of the construction, logistical and environmental requirements to provide high-quality construction services for student accommodation in Birmingham and the West Midlands.

We worked on the Dogpool lane student development, 167 beds of prime student accommodation in the heart of Birmingham, consisting of 101 studios (including 8 accessible and 66 bedroom clusters) as well as a student hub, leisure spaces, service areas, a retail unit, services, drainage, landscaping and external works.
