Snow Hill 3, Birmingham - August 2019

Visited twice first with 2 non-members and then with @scrappy.

Snow Hill 3 is the last of 3 glass towers sitting side by side to be constructed next to Snow Hill Station in Birmingham. This one is to house BT's new call centre amongst other smaller businesses and offices.

Managed by BAM construction the building is still at final fix stage and well behind its estimated completion date of summer 2018.

The visit first involved some precision timing and a lot of tip toeing, when we finally got on the roof and saw the epic view there were cheeky smiles all round. After taking some photos 2 of us decided to dare the glass roof which filters light straight down to the atrium 17 floors below. After walking on then spotting a cracked glass panel behind me I scooted off at speed spreading my weight any way possible and would not recommend attempting this. (#nearly died)

The second visit began with a short panic when we heard voices on the stairs, only to rush back down, wait outside and then see 2 teenagers in the most colourful Hawaiin shirts bundle out.
We headed back up and had a lovely chilled evening with a few beers watching the city.

External from BAM's website, Snow Hill 3 is the protruding modern glass tower between its red brick neighbours,
