The Bullring, Birmingham

The landmark redevelopment of the Bullring, Birmingham includes the new indoor market hall designed by Benoy Architects and Quarterbridge.

Quarterbridge acted as consultants to the developers, Hammerson/Birmingham Alliance, for the layout and specification of the new market hall in the Bullring and organised the relocation of 100+ tenants for the critical enabling contract that allowed the main scheme to proceed.

Fresh food hall anchor

Continuity planning ensured traders could be relocated without revenue loss and user types were deliberately mixed to reflect the historic diversity of this bustling city centre market. The anchor is a 40-unit fresh food hall with a multi-storey car park above.

Redevelopment of open market adjacent to the Bullring

Following completion of the indoor market, the local branch of the National Market Traders Federation appointed Quarterbridge to negotiate with Birmingham City Council the redevelopment of the adjacent open market. We produced conceptual designs for a new layout, stalls and a tensile roof which were adapted to create new covered aisles and stallage with undercover storage and full weather protection. The open market has always been a focal point for the city centre and its new buildings now stand proudly alongside the redeveloped Bullring.
