778-500 Bristol Road is a great refurbishment project design by MAS Architects using Vitrabond. The Vitrabond was formed in to cassettes creating a clean feature front for the building. The colour chosen was 7190 Midnight Copper which is a beautiful deep copper colour with sparking metallic finish. The colour was chosen to compliment the brickwork and the surrounding buildings whilst having a fresh modern twist. The material was supplied to RLW Roofing who completed the fabrication and installation of the rainscreen facade.

About Selly Oaks

Selly Oak is an industrial and residential area in south west Birmingham, England. The area gives its name to Selly Oak ward and includes the neighbourhoods of: Bournbrook, Selly Park, and Ten Acres. The adjoining wards of Edgbaston and Harborne are to the north of the Bourn Brook, which was the former county boundary, and to the south are Weoley, and Bournville. A district committee serves the four wards of Selly Oak, Billesley, Bournville and Brandwood.

The Oak element of the name Selly Oak comes from a prominent oak tree that formerly stood at the crossroads of the Bristol Road and Oak Tree Lane/Harborne Lane. The original spot is still commemorated by an old Victorian street sign above one of the shops on the north-side of Oak Tree Lane, which declares it to be “Oak Tree Place” and has the date of 1880.
