Project Update: Hockley Mills, Birmingham

Take a tour around Hockley Mills with Quantity Surveyor, Sam Davey, and watch drone footage of the development.

Sam Davey, Quantity Surveyor at our Hockley Mills site, updates us on this major Build to Rent (BTR) development in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, at 33 Pitsford Street. The stylish new apartments will bring much needed accommodation to the city. Sam completed his graduate programme with Sir Robert McAlpine earlier this year and has been honing his skills on this project. 

I’m really pleased with the level of development I have made on this project. I felt as though when I first arrived at Sir Robert McAlpine, I knew a bit about what the industry was but I didn’t necessarily understand how the whole lifestyle of a project works. I feel as though I have that development now and it’s about using the skills I’ve learned on this project and upskilling myself.

Sir Robert McAlpine Capital Ventures secured the £100 million forward funding deal with Legal & General for this development and appointed sister company, Sir Robert McAlpine, as contractor.

Upon completion in 2023, the scheme will be named Goodsyard and provide:

  • 395 one, two and three bedroom apartments alongside a new entrance to the Jewellery Quarter train station
  • 116 car parking spaces
  • 28,000 sq ft of flexible commercial space for retail, leisure and offices.

Giving back to local communities 

As part of our Strong Foundations Grants, Sir Robert McAlpine Capital Ventures awarded three local grassroots organisations a share of a £10,000 fund to support their roles in increasing community cohesion and boosting wellbeing.
