Birmingham Crane Survey

Development returns

Throughout 2015 we witnessed a rising number of cranes on the Birmingham skyline. This signalled a further upturn in development for the City. Which sector has seen the biggest growth, and why?

The latest Birmingham Crane Survey showcases the significant increase in new construction starts, reflecting both the rise in investor interest and the year-on-year growth of visitor numbers attracted to the UK’s second city.

The key findings show:

  • Highest level of office construction in over 13 years;
  • 693 hotel rooms under construction;
  • 600 residential units under construction;
  • 9 completed schemes since our last survey in 2013.
