Rhubarb

The Brum team are now big in rhubarb (only the second occupants so far…).

Situated within the Digbeth and Deritend conservation area, rhubarb is located next to the historic Old Crown Pub and right opposite the Custard Factory (geddit?) on Heath Mill Lane.

Here are some of the green credentials:
  • Brownfield Development Site
  • Building structure is made from 95% recycled steel
  • Low energy LED lighting throughout the communal areas
  • Efficient energy use using heat recovery technology
  • CO2 absorbing “green wall” panel (that's the big camouflage hairy caterpillar thing climbing the wall in the picture above) with rainwater harvesting
  • Well insulated building for lower running costs
We'll keep an eye on our energy use, and let you know whether the pre-occupancy marketing spiel lives up to a bit of post-occupancy analysis.

Here's a route from New Street station if you want to come and visit – a mere 11 minutes for speedy walkers.
