Chamberlain Buildings, formerly a beautifully decorated trio of late 19th to early 20th-century structures in Birmingham city centre, is to be repurposed to deliver 209 student bedrooms. The complex includes two grand Grade II listed properties, Coleridge Chambers and Ruskin Chambers, along with the unlisted King Edward House.

Currently, all three buildings are undergoing restoration to provide a mix of living spaces, including clusters, studios, and one- and two-bedroom apartments on floors one to five. Essential amenities at basement and ground levels. The ground floor will offer study areas, meeting spaces, lounges, and dining spots, while the basement will house laundry, a gym, and storage for 52 bicycles.


On this student accommodation project we have designed, supplied and installed a Category 3 sprinkler system to serve all areas of the student premises.  This includes some ordinary hazard risk areas of the basement and ground floor, where design density has been increased to 5mm/min and head spacing reduced to 12m2 coverage in line with BS9251:2021. 

Base Fire Sprinklers have installed a duty and standby pumpset to ensure adequate water supply to the sprinklers is provided in a fire scenario.
