Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham

KEY FACTS

Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham

PBA's technical assessment of transport, flood risk, air quality and noise supported the Barclaycard Arena in achieving full planning permission for its first modernisation since it opening in 1991.

The £20m refurbishment aims to make the Barclaycard Arena more accessible physically and visually, and features a new showcase entrance straight from Brindley Place into the arena, maximising the views over the canal and the city.

PBA worked with the project team to assess the current noise climate through daytime and night-time surveys and to highlight options to mitigate potential impacts.
