Elevate Property Group has appointed Leicester-based Bode Contracting Ltd to deliver the Priory House development of 79 luxury apartments in the former Birmingham forensic science laboratories.
Preparation work has been carried out in the seven storey Priory House since Elevate acquired the former home of the Forensic Science Service in Birmingham from Rainer Developments in March this year.
Bode Contracting Ltd will begin a 55 week, multi-million pound build in late June with completion scheduled for the third quarter of 2022.
Priory House was constructed in the 1950s and was occupied by the Forensic Science Service for more than 40 years before it closed in 2011. It is located in the Southside district of Birmingham on the corner of Kent Street and Gooch Street North.
Elevate intends to repurpose the landmark 77,000 sq ft building in the style and aesthetic of its renowned Concord House development on Holloway Head, one of its first projects in the city.
Formed in April 2020 by managing director Dan Bodell and co-director Jodie Bodell, Bode Contracting Ltd has already carried out work for Elevate Property Group on its recently completed Sheldon Court development in Wagon Lane, Birmingham, and on Victoria Point in Ashford, Kent.
