Investing in local people
The team has also been updating community facilities including Shirley Park itself, Royal British Legion and Scout Group buildings, and the Shirley Baptist Church.
BAM worked with Solilhull Council to recruit sub-contractors, giving local firms the opportunity to work on this important scheme for the town.
A long wait for a positive outcome
Planning issues meant the project was nearly a decade in the pipeline. But ultimately the redevelopment has been well received. Local resident Simon Mciniery said: “They have done an amazing job in a short amount of time.”
Another comment – left on a local resident’s Facebook page who has been recording the project’s progress – sums up the community’s reaction…
(A) massive thank you from Shirley Baptist Church, Solihull UK to BAM for all the hard work that went into our new halls! We had our opening celebration this Sunday and everyone was blown away by the quality of the building.
