St Barnabas Church, a grade 2 listed building in Birmingham, was subject to an arson attack in 2007 which left the church in ruins with only the external masonry structure remaining. The Church occupies a prominent plot on a main high street and the project has had to overcome a number of problems associated with access, parking and similar constraints.
The church is being restored and all necessary repairs carried out to the remaining fire damaged structure. A new contemporary roof design will be constructed for the building and a glazed café and community space built on the side of the building.
The project will mean St Barnabas will be restored and brought back into use as a church building which is used by local residents in the area. This is the single largest project being undertaken by the Birmingham Diocese and has required close liaison with multiple stakeholders including English Heritage Archaeologists, the Victorian Society and conservation officers.
Greenwood Projects are providing project management services on this project which has now been completed. The project has complexities with VAT issues which Greenwoods are dealing with as part of the service.
