Since 1878, Birmingham’s Assay Building had been used for hallmarking precious items such as jewellery and silverware – but we thought the Grade II listed building itself was a bit of a treasure, and the perfect place to house a cluster of the city’s growing number of digital and creative companies.

Set in the historic Jewellery Quarter, the building comprises 33,000 sq. ft. of heritage space. TCN has developed this into a contemporary workspace to suit a range of modern businesses, but in a way that respects its own rich history.

The fusion of these two worlds has created a building of unique character, with an atmosphere fit for inspiring innovation and collaborative business.

Maximum impact with the minimum of intervention has been the ethos behind all of TNCs recycled buildings, and the Assay Building is no different. The creative refurbishment and recycling of existing features is at the heart of this cost-effective project. TCN is responsible for the design, planning and procurement of the development, and acts as Project Developer.
