Calthorpe House Office Development, Edgbaston

Calthorpe House Edgbaston Projects Ridge & Partners LLP

Calthorpe House is a prestigious office development offering 9,810m² (105,600ft²) of sustainable, commercial accommodation on the outskirts of Edgbaston in Birmingham. Ridge played a critical role in delivering this high quality scheme.

The building is on the Calthorpe Estate, which for almost 300 years has been owned by the Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe family. Calthorpe House was one of the key projects undertaken by the Estate in recent years.

Calthorpe House is situated at a prime location with easy access, excellent car parking and an extensive range of local amenities. It was built to the highest specification and designed with the environment and energy efficiency in mind.

During the pre-tender and tendering stages the design team took great care to involve and engage the potential contractors, to regulate interviews and hold workshops to discuss the scheme. As part of this, Ridge resolved contract and warranty issues and value engineered the design further as it developed.

The resulting Grade A offices include:

  • Large open floor plates of up to 2,062m²
  • 269 secure basement car parking spaces
  • Car parking ratio of 1:36m²
  • Fully raised 150mm access floors
  • LG7 compliant lighting
  • Four pipe fan coil air conditioning system
  • Generous ceiling heights of 2.85m and double-height reception atrium
  • Four 13-person passenger lifts
  • Communal and disabled WC and shower facilities
  • Designed in conjunction with the latest DDA regulations
  • Extensive security – CCTV coverage to external common areas

Calthorpe House achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, reflecting its build quality, energy performance and low environmental impact. Its energy saving features include high levels of thermal insulation and solar control glass. In terms of energy efficiency alone, at completion the development outperformed the current statutory requirements for carbon emissions by 27%.
