Black Country House
Black Country House was originally the headquarters of Accles & Pollock, famous for the world’s first all-metal aircraft, the Mayfly. The company moved to the site in 1902, from where it grew to become one of Britain’s foremost tubing manufacturers.
Goold Estates acquired Black Country House in 2008, transforming the building through a £2m refurbishment project, including: a new insulated pitched roof, new passenger lifts, new façade, double-glazed windows throughout, modern reception area and a re-surfaced car park. The building provides 36,252 sq ft of high-quality office space, comprising a variety of features such as raised access flooring, air conditioning, suspended ceilings with LED lighting tailored to the needs of each individual tenant.
Occupiers now include the Midlands headquarters for leading accountancy firm Crowe UK, Otis Lifts and Shaw Trust. Recent lettings include the NHS and a Starbucks franchise on the ground floor.
