    From Wiki:

    A monster explore over about 10 hours, most of the floors are quite similiar so just had a stroll round, and took a variety of pics. I was here for two things, the bank and the roof! I decided a while back to try and document the changes to Birmingham as there are loads of redevelopments going on and planned, this ties in very nicely with my self project. Hopefully you will enjoy the pictures as much as I did taking them.

    The Photos

    The Bank

    1st Floor Balcony. Over looks the bank area.

    The front part of the bank was boarded and turned into a display room for people to come and view the proposed plans for development.

    The Safes

    More Spacious than my House!! I think there were five safe rooms in total! One was still locked...

    Nothing Safer than Safes in Safes!

    Thick Safe Doors!

    The Offices & Conference Rooms

    The majority of the office space was the same and totally stripped out. Just a couple of photos to show, most floors consisted of the same layout, the top floors were different with some really nice conference rooms.

    I believe these are the Directors Offices. The map has a sliding wooden panel over it that when covering the map reveals a hidden wardrobe in the side cupboard! Nice. Also a safe in the cupboard. There were two offices like this.

    Plant Room

    There was quite a few plant rooms. Snapped a few shots of one and had a wonder round the others.

    The 20th Floor

    The 20th Floor seemed to be some sort of living accomodation. Maybe for a caretaker? The bath took us by surprise and indeed the fridge in the bathroom. Handy for a beer in the bath I suppose! The rooms were totally stripped again and not worth a shot in my opinion. There was a big kitchen with goods lift down to the 18th or 19th floor kitchen.
