Czero is a property developer with twin specialisations in custom build housing and historic buildings. The business has an underlying ethos of sustainability and saving resources, both in housing where the zero carbon home is the achievable target, and in historic buildings where the reuse and repurposing of existing structures is inherently sustainable.
Czero’s current focus is on conversion of difficult listed building sites into student accommodation. In 2017 the extremely difficult project to convert the former Unitarian Chapel in Manchester in 87 beds for Empiric Student Property was completed. We are currently on site with the Emporium – developing the former Christopher Wray Lighting Factory in Birmingham into 184 student beds.
Czero acts as a ‘custom build enabler’, putting together developments of serviced plots for custom build housing. We are promoting our own sites for custom build and will also help other landowners and other developers with this strategy for delivering housing. We have a sister company, Czero Home (visit website), which works with plot purchasers to deliver customised low and zero carbon homes.
The Crown Works will comprise 203 one, two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses designed and built for modern city living. Located in Birmingham’s historic Gun Quarter, The Crown Works is just a 5-minute walk from Snow Hill Station and the Jewellery Quarter with more than 30 restaurants, bars and cafes.
