Renaissance Award Unveiling Event – George & Dragon

On Tuesday 17 October 2017, The George & Dragon Pub in the Jewellery Quarter, hosted the unveiling of its Renaissance Award.

The George and Dragon competed against some strong competition, which included The Assay Office and Gas Retort.

The event hosts Birmingham Civic Society, unveiled a Renaissance Award for ‘Outstanding Design, Engineering, Execution and Performance’.

Councillor Philip Davis, Jewellery Quarter Development Trust chair comments: “This ceremony marks the rescue and transformation of a piece of Jewellery Quarter history – the old George & Dragon boozer – into the Pig & Tail bar.

“Internally it is much changed, but in finding a new use as an attractive bar with flats above, the owners and City planners have brought new life to a once decaying 19th century building and brought it to life for residents and visitors to enjoy.”

Kartar Consulting have had the privilege of overseeing the project by providing Quantity Surveyor and Project Management services.

For Gurbinder Sandhu, Kartar Consulting Director, the former George and Dragon project is more than just an ordinary project: “Taking on a project like this not just help to improve local area but also it helps to expose city heritage. We are really honoured that George and Dragon Pub has been awarded with such a prestigious prize, as we put lots of passion and effort to make sure that this venue will once again look like it did in its glorious times.”
