The UK’s largest dedicated property platform serving the nation’s innovation economy, Bruntwood SciTech – a joint venture between Bruntwood, Legal & General and Greater Manchester Pension Fund – is continuing to deliver at pace its commitment to the future of Birmingham and the innovation community as it announces plans to transform one of its city centre innovation hubs, Cornerblock, into a forward-thinking workspace, and also appoints a new Senior Asset Manager to join the locally-based team, Moe Ali. 

Situated in heart of the Colmore Business District, home to global, market-leading companies such as Facepunch Studios, Arcadis and Mills and Reeve, Cornerblock will see its communal spaces transformed to provide new and improved areas where customers can collaborate and connect, as well as new state-of-the-art wellbeing facilities. 

Visitors will now be welcomed into a new reception area offering an impressive arrival space, concierge facilities, and places for businesses and their guests to meet and collaborate in new break-out areas and informal meeting spaces, enhancing the flexibility already on offer. 

In addition, the building's wellbeing facilities will be significantly improved through the addition of a new studio and cardio gym, a new, secure bike store with maintenance stations, and refurbished changing rooms to provide a refreshed and increased offering for customers - promoting a healthy work-life balance and encouraging active travel. 

Works, being delivered by Estilo, are due to commence in February and will complete in April.
