The ground and first floor consist of predominantly commercial space with all of the residential above.

We have been taking a walk down memory lane visiting some BM3 Christmas parties from the past 25 years! We have so many happy memories from these parties celebrating with clients and colleagues. We weren’t able to have a party this year, however, we are looking forward to 2021. This Christmas we are pleased to support Alzheimer’s Society through the #donateyourchristmasbudget campaign and we hope our donation can help support people affected by dementia. #bm3architecture #happymemories #christmas #donation #bm3news

BM3 working with EC Harris have recently gained outline planning permission for the BMHT regeneration scheme at the Primrose Estate, Kings Norton.
The Masterplan framework will deliver a residential development of maximum 295 replacement homes including 50% affordable housing, to deliver an improved diversity of housing type, tenure and affordability.
The scheme includes a proposed new local centre with a village park, mixed use development and a supermarket fronting onto Redditch Road to provide a focus and local destination for the community.
BM3 has employed Ross Pritchard to establish a new design service we can offer to our clients. As a qualified Landscape Architect, Ross will raise the profile of landscape design and further enhance the quality of our work. With his experience of both large and small scale projects we are confident that we can meet our clients expectations for fully integrated landscape design as part of their developments.
BM3 Architecture was recently invited by Southwater Event Group and Bouygues Development to submit ideas for a new 100 bed hotel at Southwater, Telford.
The concept was to utilise contextual strengths and provide an unforgettable experience for guests. The proposed site is located 2 metres lower than an adjacent manmade lake, urban beach and Town Park. BM3 designed the public areas of the hotel to be located over 2 floors with an external terrace linked to the hotel restaurant at Mezzanine level to allow views over the lake, urban beach and Town Park.
Started 3 years ago, this centre for homeless in Coventry is due for completion and commissioning early in April. Achieving BREEAM Very Good, it will provide self contained accommodation for 63 people with training and socialising space. Whitefriars Housing are looking forward to vacating the Chace Centre in Willenhall and moving in.
BM3 and WM Housing are working on redeveloping the Chace site to provide 75 plus mixed tenure new homes.
As from March 2015, the CDM Regulations have been updated. Roles have changed with the CDM-C being replaced by the Principal Designer. The roles of Designers, Principal Contractors and Clients have also been redefined. BM3 has started a series of CPD sessions to ensure all staff, in both offices understand and can fulfil their duties under the new regulations.
Staff practice procedures, protocols and Method Statements as well as our Quality Management System are being updated to reflect the new requirements.
Over 2 days Friday 6th and Saturday 7th March 2015 the ‘Born to Build’ open doors weekend was held at the site of the Earlsdon Extracare Village in Coventry.
Offering opportunities for young people to take a look into the exciting world of Construction with Galliford Try and their development partners, local schools from the Coventry and Warwickshire area were invited to attend the event held over the two days. Along with fellow consultants members of the team who work with Galliford Try manned a stand where BM3 promoted examples of recent work along with some more conceptual architectural projects designed by the practice.
Tours were being offered around the live building site where there was a chance to experience several stages of the construction process.
Once this has whetted everyone’s appetite they were invited to walk around the event. A Laptop was running, showing a building model that had been visualized in 3D. Children were invited to zoom in and around and explore the buildings. We also showed a competition model that had been professionally commissioned. This proved very popular with all groups of people as it was more amenable and could encourage them into a conversation. Over the weekend, we came across more interest from students who attended with parents wishing to discuss careers in the profession. We were able to offer advice on subject areas to follow at school, and discuss what had motivated us to pursue the careers that we now follow.
Construction work has begun for a prestigious scheme of 81 dwellings for Warwick District Council. BM3, working for Willmott Dixon Housing Ltd the Design and Build Contractor, have modelled the building in Revit using a collaborative working method. The engineering design has been integrated into the BIM model and a clash detection analysis carried out. The scheme uses a lightweight steel frame building system as the main structural element.
