HSBC Headquarters – 1 Centenary Square, Birmingham

The development at 1 Centenary Square is a new multi-storey office building located in central Birmingham and is the new HSBC UK Headquarters for their personal and commercial banking operations.

HSBC, which has 14.5 million customers in the UK, selected Birmingham for its HQ for HSBC UK and successfully moved circa 1000 head office roles from London to Birmingham as part of government plans to ringfence investment banking from retail and business banking provided by high street banks.

We were appointed by Mace–a global consultancy and construction company—in August 2017 as their Quality Site Inspectors on this 11-storey development overseeing the quality of the building aspects on site.

 ‘We are delighted to be involved in this project. Our Site Inspector has over 30 years’ experience in the construction industry and his technical knowledge is vast and includes ground works through to inspections of external wall cladding. His skills are valuable, and we are pleased to be adding value throughout all stages of the build.’

Operations Manager, Jonathan King

As Quality Site Inspectors, we provide independent and thorough site inspections to identify costly defects which may compromise the quality outcome including financial impacts and time delays.

With offices in Barnsley, Chelmsford and Edinburgh, we work with nationwide teams to oversee and improve the quality of UK construction.
