BM3 are delighted that Lyndhurst Estate regeneration in Erdington, Birmingham has won the RICS Social Impact Award for the West Midlands this month.

Many congratulations to everyone involved: BMHT, Birmingham City Council, Arcadis United Kingdom, Vistry Partnerships, Kier Living, Patrick Parsons.
Working from home update, round 2! It’s business as usual, BM3 has regular virtual catch-up meetings to ensure business continuity and for projects to run smoothly. It’s also important to promote a fun work environment, last Thursday night we organised a pub quiz via zoom, team spirit still continues behind the scenes. Many congratulations to the winning team: James, Jessica, Ben, Marcello and Leena.

BM3 are pleased to announce that in partnership with Rooftop Housing Group have gained planning permission for Swan Lane in Evesham.
The proposal comprises 27 apartments for affordable rent created in one two-storey and one three-storey building. A total of 27 car parking spaces will also be created while a number of commercial buildings, which are currently vacant, will be knocked down.
Looking forward to seeing this scheme move forward.
We're delighted that work is starting up again on our Aston Clinton site in Buckinghamshire.
BM3 has successfully gained consent for the reserved matters for all three phases of development for Taylor Wimpey North Thames. The scheme comprises 386 new dwellings and provides a mix of one and two bedroom apartments, together with two, three, four and five bedroom family homes.
Phase 1 comprises 132 new homes for shared ownership, private sale and affordable rent. The scheme provides a permeable layout, which encourages connectivity with the surrounding area. The scheme respectfully faces onto an Ancient Scheduled Monument and Heritage Park. This is a retained landscape asset with a public right of way running through the green space.
The development itself has been thoughtfully designed to provide a number of open public spaces including a wetland park, and areas of landscaped green space. The site also provides access to nearby walking routes including the Grand Union Canal. Purpose-built play areas (LEAP & NEAP) are integrated into the public open space, which provides a safe and fun space for children of varying ages.
In addition to the planning work, Bm3 is also providing post planning services including working drawings and site support for the scheme.
We're excited to see the project progress.
Good news to kick off the week, BM3 in parternship with @KeepmoatHomes have gained planning permission for Leicester Waterside! The scheme comprises of 366 new dwellings and commercial space facing onto A50 Northgate street. @Leicester_News #bm3architecture #bm3news #housing https://t.co/2qYZSVVShB

We are delighted to be working with The ExtraCare Charitable Trust on Pannel Croft’s refurbishment, with work due to begin on 3rd February.
Pannel Croft Village opened in 2012 and is situated in Newtown, Birmingham. A modernisation programme is proposed to improve space usage, business efficiency and aesthetic appeal. As part of the internal updates, it is envisaged that carpets, flooring and furniture are replaced.
We're excited to see the project progress, here's a sneak peek of what it will look like!
Throwback to our Bromsberrow Heath development, completed in 2019. BM3 on behalf of #spellermetcalfe have designed 5 new detached homes for open market sale located near the Malvern Hills. The proposal has been designed with the intention to respond to the rural surrounding, establishing a sense of character and cohesion to existing residential area. A low-density approach reduces the impact of the new development on site, balancing the space in favour of green areas. #residential #housing #private #newhomes #openmarket #rural #familyliving #modern #bm3architecture #architecture #bm3news
We said we would spice things up! BM3’s concept created a well connected site, under a cantilevered roof with pockets of space for socialising.

A big thank you to everyone who joined us and contributed towards making this such a successful evening. We are so appreciative for all the support and delighted we are able to help such a wonderful charity.

Inkerman House is a 12 storey, residential tower block located above Newtown Shopping Centre, in Birmingham. Plans for the block were approved in 1966 and it was completed in 1968. It is 44 metres tall, and contains 144 flats, with 12 flats per floor.
The refurbishment of the block forms part of the regeneration programme by Birmingham City Council, to upgrade the facades, fire safety strategies, and thermal performance of existing towers, in the City.
Our key priorities with the proposals are to create a safer and more comfortable living environment for the residents. During the public consultation, the outcome and feedback from residents were extremely positive. Residents will benefit from the building being thermally upgraded, the new heating and ventilation systems within the flats, and greater use of their amenity space, due to the new enclosed balcony system. The updated entrance will improve legibility, enhance security, and encourage residents to take ownership of their block.
Work is due to begin on the regeneration project in Tamworth! We have worked with @ENGIE_Places_UK to design 140 new affordable homes, as part of Tamworth Borough Council’s largest programme of housebuilding for a generation.
