The city of Birmingham has been given a brand new heart. The canals, once the lifeblood of the industrial revolution, have been reclaimed to provide the focus for a colourful, new, cosmopolitan ambience thanks to the extensive redevelopment of Brindley Place and Broad Street.

EH Smith is proud to have contributed to this exciting and successful regeneration scheme.
