The firm said the region will be its biggest in the “fullness of time”, amassing a healthy portfolio this year and a forecast turnover of £395 million for 2022/23. 

Projects this year: 

  • Becketwell – Derby city centre regeneration scheme (£30 million) 
  • St. Modwen Logistics – 155,000 sq ft warehouse in Birmingham  
  • University College Birmingham – former James Cond building revamp 
  • Dove Valley Park, Foston – a bottling plant for Lidl   
  • The Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham – 102-unit residential scheme 
  • Selly Oak, Birmingham – new student accommodation   
  • Tamworth retail park 

The Becketwell development will see the completion of a build-to-rent apartment block in 2023, GMI said. 

The Midlands is a big area with even bigger potential and, as we continue to invest in the region, it’s expected to become our largest UK division,” said divisional managing director, Andy Bruce. 

“As we further grow our pipeline of work in the Midlands, we will be collaborating with likeminded, forward-thinking organisations that align with our key purposes of sustainability and supporting the next generation of workers.”
