O’Brien Awarded Further Works on the Urban Splash Port Loop Regeneration Project

O’Brien has been awarded a second contract by Urban Splash at the new Port Loop Development in Birmingham.

Following on from the success of our phase one works, we have now been awarded works on the second phase.  Works on the first phase of the project was for foundations, drainage and landscaping works for 40 new 2 and 3 storey homes, including canalside housing, along with the construction of roads and pavements.  On the second phase works we will be proving foundations, drainage, landscaping, roads and pavements for a further 28 2 and 3 storey homes.

O’Brien looks forward to continuing working with Urban Splash to create a state-of-the-art new development project.

Circled by a kilometre of historic canal, Port Loop is a brand new community with an urban island at its heart. Just 15 minutes’ walk from the city centre, this is Birmingham’s most exciting new place to live.

The Port Loop masterplan includes a range of spacious modern homes, communal gardens, a new swimming pool and leisure centre, traffic-free green streets, a vibrant community hub and central Birmingham’s first new public green spaces in over a decade. Over 1.5km of new tow paths will also help to make it part of a better connected city. A place for couples, singletons, families and all generations, it’s a brand new neighbourhood, built from the ground up.

Urban Splash said: “The future neighbourhood of Port Loop will be both liveable and loveable. We are creating an environment that helps us look after ourselves, with homes that suit our changing ways of life in a place that embraces multi-generational living.

On Saturday 1st September 2018 a team of 18 set off on the Wolf Run, a 10K run including 30 obstacles, made up of cargo nets, a lake swim and treading through tons of mud.  The team’s ages ranged from 20 to 60 years old, the course was by no means an easy task, impressively all contenders finished unscathed and elated at the thought of a well-earned rest.

The Wolf Run event is held on a regular basis throughout the year, in all weathers, and was held at Welsh Road Farm in Hunningham, Warwickshire.
