Aggregate Industries has provided almost of all the internal concrete provision required in the development of the Birmingham Conservatoire.
The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, which has replaced the former Adrian Boult Hall in Paradise Circus, is a £57 million teaching and performance facility. Housing a 500-seat concert hall and other performance spaces including a recital hall, organ studio and a dedicated jazz club, the building has been labelled as a world class venue for students and the community alike.
Aggregate Industries was awarded the contract to supply ready-mixed concrete to the project by Thames Formwork under main contractor, Galliford Try, with the two companies also working together at the redevelopment of the city’s Snow Hill station.
In total, the Aggregate Industries’ team supplied a colossal 4,000 m 3 of RC40 standard concrete, some 85% of the total concrete supplied for the internal structure over the course of the project.
