Meet Your Building Directors

Every leaseholder in QCC is a shareholder of 36-38 Paradise Circus Management Ltd, the managing company that has responsibility for QCC.

All directors are residents in the building and currently there are 6 Directors including – Robbie Beak, Chris Wright, Paul Travill, Veejay Lingiah and Jean Ensel.

The Directors, the Building Manager Dave Eldridge and representatives of GBR Phoenix Beard, the managing agents appointed by 36-38 Paradise Circus Management Ltd meet about every 6-8 weeks to address current issues, agree schedules of work and review issues such as action on debtors.

If you are interested in taking a role in the running of your building please have a chat with Dave Eldridge.


David Eldridge – Building Manager

I have been employed at QCC for 12 years and loved every minute of my time here, more so since being employed directly by QCC Management Company and having day to day responsibility for the building, liaising with contractors and Managing Agents and monitoring performance of our contracts. I have worked in the city center for the last 21 years, 10 years as security manager for The Pallasades shopping center & also Facility Manager for Natwest Bank looking after all city centre call centres (I also worked as coal miner in the derbyshire coal fields for 8 years)

Robbie Beak – Building Director

I run my own company brokering investment into high growth companies. I have lived at QCC for 2 Years  but worked in the city for 8 years and have a decent ear for whats going on in local construction developments around QCC. I am keen to work with the board, residents and Managing Agents to improve our building and raise its profile in the city

Veejay Lingiah – Building Director
I have lived in QCC now for over 9 years and I am involved in a number of businesses based in Birmingham, principally focussed within the Arts, Design & Media sectors.  I joined the QCC Board in 2010 and I am passionate about how we can develop and upgrade the building for the benefit of all owners and residents.  I firmly believe that over the next few years, our aim should be to make QCC the most prestigious apartment building within the city (inside and out).

Paul Travill – Building Director

I’ve lived in QCC since 2006 and have been a board director since 2008.  I work at the University of Wolverhampton and was initially attracted to QCC because of its close proximity to New St Station.  Since moving in I’ve grown to release what a great place QCC is, and what potential the place has to be one of the best residential blocks in the city. I am keen to work to see what we can do to maintain and improve the building – starting with the long overdue reception.  But there are other things we’ll need to keep an eye on – starting with the redevelopment of the current library buildings – the development could have a significant impact.

Jean Ensell – Building Director
I have been living in Queens College Chambers for just over 3 years and am thoroughly enjoying intercity living, the unique architectural character of our building and the casual, friendly and safe environment fostered within.  Currently lecturing at BCU Institute of Art and Design and undertaking freelance Textile Design work, I understand the value good design can add, both monetarily and to general atmosphere. Maintaining and building upon the aesthetic qualities of our physical space are of particular interest to me and I hope to have the opportunity to make a positive contribution to improvements planned to the communal areas.
