Birmingham Crane Survey 2019

Redefining our place

Birmingham continues to hit new heights as it drives forward into an era of re-development and re-purposing. Yet again, the city has record-levels of construction with both developer and investor confidence high as preparation for HS2 gets underway and the 2022 Commonwealth Games draws ever closer. The question is, which sectors thrived in 2018 and are we starting to see a re-focus of developer activity?

The key findings show:

  • City centre residential development reaches an all-time high with over 5,000 units under construction 
  • Office development surpasses 1.4 million sq ft for the third consecutive year 
  • Student accommodation surges to its highest ever level with 2,667 units under construction
  • High street retail sector continues to undergoes structural change 
  • 16 completed schemes since our last survey
