AHR submits plans for Birmingham co-working space

  • Comment

AHR has lodged plans for a new innovation space to allow small and medium sized tech firms to access academic research in Birmingham

The Universities Centre has been designed to make it easy for firms to engage with the city’s five universities, and has been funded by the Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership.

It will create an additional 540m² of enterprise space as an extension to a building on the Innovation Birmingham campus, which is currently home to 110 digitally-based firms.

More than half of the space in the new facility will be dedicated to flexible co-working space, with the remainder to be used for training sessions and events.

All five universities in Birmingham will have a high definition video conferencing suite installed in the building.

It will also be served by a 30Gbit/s broadband service – equalling the fastest internet connection available anywhere in the UK.

The proposed new building would be constructed on an existing podium which sits above car parking space.

The new centre is the second of five new developments planned for the campus. The first, named iCentrum – is set to open in March.
