Bowmer+Kirkland is celebrating a key milestone in the refurbishment and expansion of a historic former cycle works.

After 15 months of restoration, the scaffolding has been removed from the former Belmont Works cycle factory, in Birmingham, to reveal its iconic façade.

The building had stood derelict since being gutted by fire in 2007. Now, a multi-million-pound project is taking place to turn it into Birmingham City University’s STEAMhouse, which will be a collaborative space for businesses, academics and creative partners.

Bowmer+Kirkland teams from the North Midlands and Yorkshire regions are working on the project to restore and expand the building.

Regional director Steve Chambers said: “It is wonderful to be able to unveil the building and reveal the work that has been done to restore the façade.

“This marks a significant milestone in the delivery of STEAMhouse and is testament to the hard work, dedication and teamwork by everyone involved through a very challenging 18 months.”
