Welcome to Build Fifty5 Living Ltd

We would like to extend a warm welcome to new tenants at e-Innovation Centre….. find out more about Build Fifty5 Living Ltd

The business consists of a small team of construction professionals offering Project Management and Construction Development services to clients across the UK and Europe.  Buildfifty5 are often site based.

Build Fifty5 provides a comprehensive range of services through experience and expertise in the construction industry which includes residential, commercial, mixed-use, industrial, leisure and speculative strategic developments.  As Development Managers, Build Fifty5 challenge designers and contractors to maximise potential using fresh ideas and innovative thinking.

The current workload includes residential schemes in Birmingham, Smethwick and Nottingham, and student accommodation in Coventry and Cardiff.  We are also delivering industrial schemes in Avonmouth, Evesham and Gloucester.

Build Fifty5 Living was established in 2019.  Through our wider network of clients and relationships over recent years we recognised an increase in demand from Housing Associations and residential developers for schemes ranging in size from 20 to 100 units and set out to act as both Developer and Development Managers.

Our schemes utilise both brownfield and greenfield settings across the west midlands to improve the built environment through innovate design solutions and to enhance the local areas.  Our aim is to support the local authorities and organisations to help meet the housing need.  For example our current workload  and enquiries include:

  • Our Smethwick scheme utilises land from a previously demolished Public House to deliver 24 affordable units for Citizen housing Association.
  • Our Tile Cross and Coventry Schemes comprises a derelict / disused Convent, Church Hall and Bungalow on which we intend to deliver 100 Move on Accommodation units for the YMCA Heart of England.
  • We are in discussions with a council to deliver two sites in Shropshire with over 100 units for affordable rent on behalf of an institutional investor.
  • An affordable retirement facility in Telford
  • Community led Retirement Living for persons of affordable means in Wolverhampton.
