Design team sought for Birmingham City University campus

Birmingham City University (BCU) is on the hunt for an architect for the £20 million final phase of its new City Centre Campus

The winning team will design a new 10,000m² building featuring teaching spaces, lecture theatres, academic offices and support offices

Planned to complete in September 2017, the new facility in Birmingham’s Eastside regeneration zone is also expected to include a data centre, refectory, student support area and retail.

The project – known as Phase 2A – is the final stage of BCU’s migration, consolidation and centralisation within two new campuses which is planned to mature in the next five years.

Associated Architects completed the £61 million first phase of the new City Centre Campus next to Grimshaw’s landmark Millenium Point in September last year. The 24,300m² second stage – known as Phase 2 – also started on site last summer.

The Eastside regeneration zone will feature Fielden Clegg Bradley’s new home for the Birmingham Conservatoire, planned to open in 2017 and is expected to undergo massive transformation as a terminal for HS2.

The latest tender is split into four lots with companies free to bid for one or more of the lots.

  • Lot 1 – architect, lead consultant, catering, landscape, wayfinding and BIM,
  • Lot 2 – mechanical, electrical, public health, fire, acoustics, security, ICT, Part L consultant,
  • Lot 3 – civil and structural consultant,
  • Lot 4 – cost consultant, CDM co-ordinator, party wall surveyor.

BCU’s in-house project management team will take responsibility for delivering the project.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 1 August.
