Goodmans Yard Taking Shape

20th December 2019

We at Piper Whitlock are very pleased to share progress photos of the proposed footbridge and foundation works forming part of our scheme for Goodman’s Yard, Selly Oak, Birmingham. This bridge will span the Worcester and Birmingham Canal, forming a link between the recently completed Selly Oak Shopping Park and a new landscaped plaza on the east bank.

The bridge is in a Corten-type weathering steel and is now being shot-blasted before it develops it’s rich colour and patina. This is the result of a very rewarding design process working with a specialist bridge fabricator and contractor to realise our bridge concept as a finished structure — a design first for Piper Whitlock Architecture.
