Ingenuity House in Birmingham is available to let


Ingenuity House, one of Birmingham’s most iconic office buildings, has become available to let.

The futuristic five-storey landmark, which has an anodised aluminium exterior, comprises 113,637 sq ft of Grade A office space which includes a spectacular central atrium, 79 meeting rooms, 76 breakout spaces, eight training areas and a cafe.

Douglas Bonham, head of the Birmingham National Offices team at global real estate advisor Colliers, said Ingenuity House could attract a major employer to Birmingham, as it is expected to appeal to potential occupiers ranging from blue chip companies to government departments.

“Ingenuity House is arguably the ultimate office building, offering the best in class solution in terms of connectivity, award winning design and specification, innovation, environmental credentials and parking allocation,” he said.

“It was only constructed in late 2017 and provides the M42’s only ‘smart building’, with the largest, most efficient, floor plates in the West Midlands outside of Birmingham city centre.

“In addition to offering a superb specification, it is strategically located at a major commercial hub, adjacent to Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station, and in close proximity to the National Exhibition Centre and the proposed Birmingham Interchange HS2 Station.

“It is therefore likely that it could attract a major employer to Birmingham, given its suitability to businesses such as blue chip companies requiring headquarters premises or a major regional office. It is also likely to appeal to government departments presently located in London but seeking to move out of the capital to benefit from cheaper office rents.”

Ingenuity House, which is being marketed by Colliers on behalf of Interserve, has the biggest floorplate in the M42 area, and is available either in part from 26,210 sq ft or in its entirety of just under 114,000 sq ft.

Designed by Sheppard Robson architects, Ingenuity House opened in 2018, and a year later received gold national and silver regional awards for innovation at the annual British Council for Offices (BCO) awards.

It was built as a sustainable office building, with the aim of providing a healthy and innovative working environment which supports flexible ways of working, open communication and collaboration.

It uses building analytics to improve environmental conditions and its energy performance, and it has achieved EPC-B and BREEAM Excellent ratings for its rigorous air tightness specification, supplementary power through solar panels, turbo cooled chillers and fan coil units.

In addition to having close proximity to public transport connections, Ingenuity House has 450 car parking spaces and 25 electric vehicle charging points, and there is also an option to lease a further 450 spaces. There are also cycle racks, shower blocks and a changing area.
