New Starbucks drive-thru to open in Birmingham

A new Starbucks drive-thru restaurant is set to open this Summer in Birmingham with work well underway on site.

Midlands-based Deeley Construction was appointed by LondonMetric Property to build the 1,840 sq ft project just south of the city centre.

The new restaurant will be built on vacant land next to the Sofology furniture store, that was also successfully completed by Deeley Construction in 2021, on John Kempe Way, Camp Hill.

This new development further expands the Deeley Group’s roadside expertise, and this will be the third Starbucks that Deeley have completed in the past five years. Customers can expect to get their caffeine fix from the American multinational chain, at the new location in Summer.

The development has been designed by RGP Architects Ltd, with Insignis Consulting Engineers on board as mechanical and electrical engineers, and Evolve Consulting Engineers as the appointed structural and civil engineers.

Sharman Projects are the appointed project and cost managers for the development, which is being sustainably built and is expected to achieve BREEAM Excellent status, a leading sustainability accreditation.

Martin Gallagher, managing director of Deeley Construction, said: “We’re excited to be working again with LondonMetric on this project.

“Our relationship started with the rebuild of the Dunelm Mill store in Coventry around a decade ago and we are pleased to work with them and their Employer’s Agent, Sharman Projects, again.

“The new restaurant will generate employment for people living in the area and it will be a strong addition to those who live in or pass through Camp Hill.”

Tom Pinder, of LondonMetric Property, said: “As a business, LondonMetric Property has a longstanding relationship with Deeley, and it always gives me great personal pleasure when we deliver a project together.

“We share similar core values when it comes to responsible development and procurement, and Deeley clearly understand LondonMetric Property’s key drivers. We look forward to completing the project in the Summer.”
