The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has today (11 October 2017) announced the location of its new office premises in Birmingham.

From early 2018 the RICS will move into 55 Colmore Row, acquiring the entire fifth and 50% of the ground floor, joining previously confirmed tenants, Savills and Pinsent Masons.

RICS confirmed in early 2017 their plans to relocate from their existing location in Coventry to new premises in Birmingham.

The operational headquarters will move in early 2018 and will see the existing West Midlands regional office join the Coventry team from their previous premises on Waterloo Street.

We have for a long time looked to move our operational headquarters from Surveyor Court and we are pleased to announce that we will be moving into central Birmingham come 2018.

55 Colmore Row not only gives us a more flexible space, it brings us into the centre of a significant city allowing us the opportunity to better engage the profession, employers of the profession and raise awareness and inspire the next generation.

The move will coincide with the RICS’ 150th anniversary where a series of events are taking place across the year to celebrate the significant anniversary.
