Colmore Square Enhancement
A video clip showing the enhancement of Colmore Square, which was completed in April 2014. The area in between Colmore Row and Steelhouse Lane has been improved with new soft landscaping and planting as well as feature lighting and benches. The square now also contains a chess garden ‘pocket park’ featuring two stone tables with inset chessboards.
The Colmore Square scheme is the first area enhancement civil engineering project to be undertaken solely by a Business Improvement District (BID) in Birmingham. The scheme was designed by Capita’s land planning team with construction work implemented by The Landscape Group Ltd. Project management services were provided by Mace. The video features interviews at the launch event for the square.
