Growing our Green Heritage

We’ve been selected to deliver a transformational masterplan for the Grade-II* listed Birmingham Botanical Gardens, home to the Midland’s finest and largest collection of botanic species.

The Growing our Green Heritage project is currently in receipt of a Stage 1 National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant, made possible by National Lottery players, of £590,814 towards a total delivery grant of £13.8 million. We were successful with our application after a rigorous selection and interview process of over 14 national design teams.

The project will provide a low-carbon, sympathetic reinterpretation of the existing gardens and structure and will deliver a long-term sustainable future for the gardens. By carefully pairing back the layers, the design team will improve the visitor experience and facilities.

The 15-acre site is home to many heritage assets, including four Victorian glasshouses, which will be restored to reflect their original form and adapted to serve contemporary horticultural needs. The project has been awarded Heritage Lottery development funding, and we are collaborating with conservation specialists and historic buildings consultants Donald Insall Associates.

Once completed, the project will transform this key heritage asset to align with the City’s Our Future City plan to create a green, sustainable, and walkable city.
