Demolitions

Lawrence & Dalton towers

The towers were student accommodation built in the 1970s. In 2011 they were demolished to make room for new, more modern accommodation to be constructed. 

Stafford tower

Stafford tower was demolished in 2014, creating space for future developments. Engineers said it was one of the most challenging jobs they had taken on, with the nearest building just 6m away. Removing the 21-storey tower has dramatically changed the Birmingham skyline.

Gem Sports Hall

The Gem Sports Hall was demolished in 2014.
