Bode Contracting to deliver Priory House development in UK
June 07, 2021 – Real estate developer Elevate Property Group has selected Bode Contracting to deliver the Priory House development in Birmingham, UK.
The project will see the transformation of the former Birmingham forensic science laboratories into 79 luxury apartments.
In March this year, Elevate Property acquired the former home of the Forensic Science Service in Birmingham from Rainer Developments.
Since the acquisition, the preparation work has been carried out in the seven-storey Priory House, which was built in the 1950s.
Before closing in 2011, the 77,000ft2 building, located in the Southside district of Birmingham on the corner of Kent Street and Gooch Street North, was occupied by the Forensic Science Service for more than 40 years.
Elevate Property is planning to repurpose the building in the style and aesthetic of its renowned Concord House development on Holloway Head.
The company has also appointed D5 Architects, structural engineers Farrow Walsh Consulting, and mechanical and electrical engineers Couch Perry Wilkes to design and work on the project.
Solihull-based Paragon Bank will provide funding for the Priory House development.
Bode Contracting managing director Dan Bodell said: “We are really excited to have been appointed to such a prestigious project – to develop premium residential living space in this magnificent building.
“Elevate Property Group has built a reputation for quality, medium rise, large town and inner city residential developments, and the design and finish of Priory House, when completed, will set a new standard for residential living in Birmingham.”
The company has already delivered Sheldon Court development in Wagon Lane, Birmingham, and Victoria Point in Ashford, Kent for Elevate Property Group.
