C&C Baseline recently completed work on the Grand Hotel Birmingham, located on Coleman Row. The hotel is a grade II listed victorian building, first constructed in 1875. The hotel closed in 2002 due to structural issues, but this year extensive restoration work began, with an official grand opening planned for early 2021. The hotel will offer 185 luxury bedrooms, two bars, a restaurant, gymnasium, and a number of meeting rooms and event spaces.
C&C Baseline were employed as the main metal work contractor in January of this year, as part of the 45 million pound complete restoration and refurbishment project.
C&C Baseline have worked to design, manufacturer and install some of the aspects that make this hotel so distinctive. Some of the work completed includes:
- Decorative brass work that was performed on the reception counter, on over 50 mirrors around the hotel, the surrounds to the public toilets, vanity legs within the rooms, and the bar gantry’s.
- A new highly polished lounge bar, constructed with a Zinc Countertop with Bull Nose front.
- A decorative reception ceiling feature.
- A brass balustrade with glazed infill.
- A blackened mild steel fireplace.
The hotel is a historic venue, which has undergone an incredible transformation with the help of C&C Baseline. It was designed to provide future visitors with a delightful and memorable experience.
The design team for this project was Robert Angell Design International Architects from Synergy Architects Ltd.
The main contractor for this project was Graham Construction.
