SOLIHULL’S Urban Growth Company (UGC) is working with VINCI Building to promote a social inclusion programme to help deliver change for communities around the £3.2 billion Arden Cross site.
VINCI Building is the design and build contractor for the new Multi Storey Car Park (MSCP) for the HS2 Interchange station at Arden Cross.
The company have an on-going programme of outreach work that includes engagement with 100 students from nearby Arden Academy and running workshops with students around the subjects of architecture, commercial and engineering.
Jonathan Bretherton, managing director of the Urban Growth Company, said: “VINCI is the perfect partner to bring the plans for the MSCP forward for the benefit of our existing communities as well as the new communities being created as part of the wider UK Central Hub.
“Their ability to engage with the local community and carry out a wide range of outreach work with local schools, colleges and their students, helps us to inspire students to join the construction, infrastructure and development sectors and also to drive interest in STEM subjects.”
The car park is part of plans to create new homes and jobs at Arden Cross, alongside the new Interchange station and just minutes from the existing Birmingham International station and airport.
