University College Birmingham - New Campus Development
10/10/2010

UCB is currently planning for development of a 4 acre site, near to the present campus, which secures their longer term future.

The proposed first phase for the development is a large building of world-class design, with provision primarily for postgraduate studies; with lecture theatres and seminar rooms, a large flexible auditorium, a 24-hour collaborative learning hub, conferencing facilities and improved internal and external social space for students.

The Buildings will be some of the most energy efficient and eco-friendly in the country, featuring natural air conditioning, grey water recycling, green roofs, etc.

UCB are mindful that the development is in a Conservation Area, being on the edge of the Jewellery Quarter, and are being sympathetic to this in developing the proposals in conjunction with the Birmingham City Council’s Planning Department, who are very enthusiastic about the potential for the development to add to the amenities and use of this historic part of the city. As a very broad timeline, UCB hope to achieve full design and planning by October 2011, with works commencing on the new site by November 2011 for completion by March 2013.

During what will no doubt be very tough financial times in higher and further education in coming years, this project is truly exciting stage in UCBs development , The UCB Corporation’s determination to progress it during such a downturn in the economy and the construction industry demonstrates great confidence in the future.

Sarcophagus and the-project have been chosen as their collaboration service during this development.
