Creating a new flagship educational facility for the University of Birmingham


  • 500-seater lecture theatre
  • 10 seminar rooms
  • Cutting-edge learning environment

Our team in Birmingham has been awarded another contract with the University of Birmingham to provide a purpose-built teaching and learning building at the Edgbaston Campus, adjacent to the new library and bordering the Green Heart space.

As a hub for education, the facility will provide a state-of-the-art teaching and social study space to support the modern learning experience at the University.

The building will be IT and audio visual-rich, with excellent access for students with a diverse range of needs and preferences. It will consist of:

  • A 500-seater lecture theatre
  • A 250-seater interactive lecture theatre
  • 10 seminar rooms for 30 students at a time
  • Learning spaces for up to hundreds of students, which will include areas for individual study, collaborative group work and creative break-out sessions
  • A café

This project is one of many others we have carried out in Birmingham, we have created The Green Heart, Old Gym and Data Centre
