  • Friday Bridge, Birmingham - External Renovations
  • In the mid 1800s, the area around Saturday Bridge was known colloquially as the Parade and was one of the chief merchant centres in Birmingham where boatmen would receive their wages or payment at this point for their merchant goods that they sold in this area.

    A little further up the canal or the Parade, used to be Friday Bridge, near Congreave Street – the name exists today as Congreave Passage. The name was given because merchants in this area changed their payday to a Friday from a Saturday, and the bridge became a meeting point for the merchants. Friday Bridge once stood at the top of Summer Row, but sadly, many sections of the canal network no longer exist.

    These days, Friday Bridge is the name of a Canalside housing development in Birmingham City Centre, comprising of 4 & 5 Story blocks with an internal courtyard. The development is a short walk from the vibrant city centre, Mailbox and New Street Station

  • In January 2019, Dovetail Group successfully tendered for external works to both road facing and internal facing elevations.

    The work comprised of: Preparation & decoration of Juliet balconies, metal railings, metal gates, structural roof members including purlins, metal columns and struts, facias, render panels, timber pergolas, fibre board soffits and replacement of 4 x aluminium double door set.

    The works presented many challenges, including lengthy road closures in Britain’s 2nd city, but over the course of an 8-week program, the team did a fantastic job and gave the development a much-needed lift.
