National Indoor Arena refurbishment
Hulley & Kirkwood has been appointed M&E consultant for the £20.6 million major internal and external overhaul of the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham. The project will take two years, with the venue remaining open throughout. This venue has not been refurbished since its opening in 1981, and the project is the key to continuing its long-term success.
The new design includes further opportunities for retail units, with a extra 5926 m2 of pre- and post-show space added to the 7500 m2 of refurbishment that will take place.
The new arena will be over four floors, with 540 more seats and an increased standing capacity of 800 with significantly more bars and restaurants and top-class hospitality.
