Clegg Construction appointed on 148-bed apartment scheme

27 October 2022

Clegg Construction has started work on a key apartment development in Birmingham – its second in the same street.
The company is undertaking enabling works on a scheme which will create 148 build-to-rent duplexes and apartments at The Lamp Works in Great Hampton Street.
Three commercial spaces will also feature in the Jewellery Quarter development, which is a mix of new-build and conversion.
Pre Construction Director at Clegg Construction, Ross Crowcroft, said: “The Lamp Works is an exciting scheme in an area with a strong heritage and Clegg Construction is very pleased to be taking a key role as this development gets underway.
“This is an area that we are very familiar with, as Clegg Construction has recently delivered Gilders Yard in Great Hampton Street, a conversion and extension of the grade II listed Ashford & Sons industrial workshops into 157 apartments and commercial space.”
Marcus Hawley, CEO at Cordia Blackswan, commented: “The Lamp Works offers a unique proposition to modern city dwellers, providing quality amenities that are both practical and useful in everyday life. As always, this will be delivered whilst retaining the Jewellery Quarter’s renowned heritage and architectural design.

“The commencement of construction at The Lamp Works marks an exciting next step in our vision to revitalise Great Hampton Street and transform this key route into the city. Our aim is to create desirable spaces for the local community to enjoy whilst benefitting the local economy, and we’re proud to see our vision starting to come to life.”

Nottingham-based Clegg Construction is working for client Cordia Blackswan on The Lamp Works development, which includes five sensitively-designed new builds reflecting the area’s industrial history, plus improvements to 30-33 Great Hampton Street commercial units.
A range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, including 13 affordable homes, will feature in the complex, which was once the site of a brass foundry and furniture works.
