Stanton Williams and Galliford Try scheme to fully complete next spring

Architect Stanton Williams and contractor Galliford Try have completed work to upgrade the Mailbox shopping centre in Birmingham.

The Mailbox was built in 1970 and was turned from a Royal Mail sorting office into a mixed-use scheme back in 2001.

The latest work has involved redesigning office, retail and public areas with alterations including work to the interior of the building, with the removal of large parts of the existing structure and the introduction of a new skylight to create an internal 90m long ‘Urban Room’.

The joint joint venture developers are Milligan and Brockton Capital, while DBK is project manager.

The team has also redeveloped 4,700sq m of office space with work on all office areas due to be completed by next spring.
