Congratulations to our One Centenary Way project team after the building was named ‘Best Commercial Workplace’ at the BCO Midlands and Central Awards 2024.

Centenary Way at Paradise Birmingham wins ‘Best Commercial Workplace’ at the BCO Midlands and Central Awards 2024.


One Centenary Way Birmingham

Part of the city’s £1.2 billion Paradise development, organised by the development and construction teams, MEPC and Sir Robert McAlpine, One Centenary Way, which reached practical completion in March 2023 delivers 280,000 sq ft in the heart of the city’s new mixed-use district. 

One of Birmingham’s most sustainable buildings, One Centenary Way is all-electric, BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC A rated, and has been designed to WiredScore requirements for connectivity.

It also has a fully demountable superstructure, enabling a circular economy. The building houses the city’s first public cycle hub for 450 bikes, with showers, storage and maintenance facilities, and provides shared access to high quality wellness suites.

The calibre of this year’s awards has pushed the boundaries of workplace design. The increasing focus on carbon reduction in use and during construction, and a true emphasis on the health and wellbeing of all who use workplaces, has been outstanding.
