The Northspring development at 31 Temple Street, B2 5DB, has undergone transformational renovation to provide Birmingham with 24 exclusive suites across 7 floors at a location in the central business district close to New Street station.
With offices starting from 1,100 square foot and dedicated drop-in Zoom zones, the building’s opulent style is mirrored in the choice for a stylish choice of matt black and satin brass handles, door closers, door signs, and ancillary items.
Merlin also provided the architectural ironmongery to Temple Street’s sister Northspring offices at Wellington Street, Spring Gardens, Chapel Walks, Peter Street, and Park Row at Leeds and Manchester.
With the above front of mind, our estimating team helped the designers create a specification and all accompanying paperwork for the ironmongery on all seven floors of the Temple Street project. Setting to work on this project had some challenges, like for it to be quoted door by door to complete our door packaging service later, for example.
The meticulous eye for detail of our estimator meant that the customer soon signed this order off and we began to schedule and refinish ironmongery into the specified colours (both black and satin brass).
The ironmongery for this Birmingham project was supplied on time and in full and we are very happy with the quality of our finished products, as shown in these photos. We’re sure our customer and their client are too!
Was there some sort of temple here? The street name would seem to indicate it but what’s the truth behind the name? One theory is that The Temple was a nickname for an old summerhouse that stood in a large garden in Temple Street.
It could also have been a dovecote – where pigeons or doves were kept – and like many of those structures, it was probably ornate and eye-catching enough to look like a temple. The buildings down Temple Street all tend to be of this nature.
It has also been suggested the name comes from a small theatre located here and used by travelling bands of performers. It was known in full as the Temple of Thespis. Temple Street was created in 1715, built on the cherry orchards that once stood in the city centre.
Opulent design, furnishings, and fittings plus an underground carpark plus the latest in structural details and workplace technologies make Temple Street a workplace like no other.
