Paradise Circus Birmingham

Gattica have been involved with the Paradise Circus Birmingham project from the early planning through to successful delivery of required utility diversions and new supplies in support of the development. Early infrastructure works began in January 2015 and Gattica through several stages of the development.

Gattica knowledge of the disconnection, diversion and new supply process has been invaluable in the smooth running of the Paradise Circus Birmingham Project. The site has remained live since 2015 and as a result any diversions of existing utilities and placement
of new infrastructure has had to be undertaken in a timely manner with as little disruption as possible, all the while ensuring that there is no break in service.

Project Scope

Our Key Responsibilities

  • Diversion, protection, disconnection and abandonments of utilities no longer required.
  • Decommissioning and removal of two substations and associated works to keep the Birmingham School of Music live during this process.
  • Relocation of National Grid Electricity Distribution (NGED), formally Western Power Distribution (WPD) HV mains around the new development which included major equipment upgrades to the A38 tunnel supplies whilst keeping the tunnels open to traffic.
  • Realignment of multiple communications core routes within Sandpits and Summer Row which included Virgin Media, Vodafone,
    Colt, Openreach and ongoing support to route selection for communication supplies to the development. The site has remained live since 2015 and still has phases ongoing.
  • Road junction improvements Great Charles Street, Sandpits, Lionel Street, Cambridge Street, Suffolk Street and Broad Street this included diversion / adjustment of the associated utility infrastructure.
  • The Paradise Circus area is served by strategic communications infrastructure with a huge Openreach footprint and therefore the required
    outage periods of 3 months had to be carefully orchestrated.
  • Procurement and coordination of installation of new supplies specifically aligned to wayleaves and easements.
