Young Professionals Octagon Site Visit

Come and Join the G4C at a site tour of the OCTAGON!

When completed, this skyscraper will sit at 155m tall, becoming the tallest building in Birmingham. The Octagon is the first pure octagonal high rise residential building in the world and is considered to be one of the most influential buildings within the city centre of Birmingham. Don’t miss this opportunity for a ‘boots on the ground’ tour during its construction!

PLEASE NOTE: all attendees must bring their own PPE – hart hat, high vis and steel toe cap boots. Please do not book a ticket if you cannot supply your own PPE as you will not be allowed onto the Octagon construction site.
