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.

We organised a Fireworks Evening in our courtyard, located in Digbeth.
BM3’s team enjoyed the evening, with food, great music and drinks whilst watching a glittering array of fireworks!
We are delighted to announce the promotions of Chad Farmer, Anna McGhee, Matthew Caulfield, Ranjit Johal, Ross Pritchard, Stuart Caldicott, John Kidner and Konstantina Zannetaki to Associates!

We attended the opening of the Almshouses in Little Gransden.
The Almshouses owned by the Julia Norris Almshouse Trust, were constructed in 1902. BM3 was instructed to repair and refurbish these for elderly persons. With the proposals each flat gained 6 square metres of additional space. This represents a 15% increase in size, something that significantly improved the quality and sustainability of the dwellings.
We hosted RIBA Building Brum: Digbeth in Colour in our open air courtyard, located in Digbeth. The event was the fourth in the #buildingbrum series, a programme of cross-disciplinary events set to run throughout 2017 looking at different aspects of Birmingham's built environment.
The BM3 Team wanted to celebrate Digbeth and showcase using colour how it is only set to grow in coming years into an alternative hub of sustainable and creative energy. Guests took part in the 'colour a canvas' outlining a Digbeth landmark and were able to try their hand at graffiting the Birmingham skyline.
There was over 100 people joining us and we were very excited by people’s participation on the night. The events are a collaboration between the RIBA, ICE, RICS, RTPI, BIID, SBID, Landscape institute and CIOB sponsored by EH Smith, Interface, Johnson Tiles and Orangebox.
Quote: RIBA Project Manager and Building Brum Organiser Conor Nolan:
''It was great to see everyone who came to Digbeth let their creative side out and get stuck into the grafting and painting. The Building Brum series is all about celebrating Birmingham in creative and unique ways and BM3 Architecture really tapped into the built environment community’s artistic side to paint their city.''
