Supporting Colmore Business District – Creating a place to live and work



SimkissGuy HQ is based in the heart of Birmingham city centre’s Colmore Business District, in the Colmore Building. For us, it was the natural choice, and we have never looked back.

Knowing what an amazing place this city is to both live and work, we do all we can to support the fantastic work that is delivered by Colmore Business District, known as CBD.

CBD is a business improvement district (BID) established to project manage improvements and services to the business quarter of Birmingham. A BID is a defined geographical area within which local businesses collaborate to invest in projects, services and initiatives which improve the environment in which they work. BIDs deliver additional services to those provided by the local authority and police; these projects and services are the result of business investment in the area.

It was this incredibly valuable work that saw SimkissGuy Co-founder and Joint Managing Director, Richard Guy, step up to take an active role on one of CBD’s key steering groups. After several years as a member of The Outstanding Spaces Working Group, Richard was appointed as a Board Director of the CBD to help provide strategic direction and act as a representative of SMEs in the district.

In 2017, SimkssGuy Relationship Manager Alex Foyle joined CBD’s Safe and Sound working group who care for the experience of being in CBD and partner on projects to deliver services that enhance this experience.

Giving a voice to levy payers and having delivered huge improvements to Church Street and Colmore Square. CBD’s current projects include the improvement of Cornwall Street and, working alongside Birmingham City Council, the incredibly exciting Snow Hill Interchange Plan!

Creating a great place to live and work, because life is too short to not enjoy what you do and where you work.
