Willmott Dixon hands over the key to Birmingham City University’s multi-million pound new building

Construction giant Willmott Dixon will officially hand over the keys to Birmingham City University’s Parkside Building this Wednesday.

The event celebrates the completion of one of the most sophisticated learning environments in the UK – right in the heart of Birmingham.

The flagship Parkside Building is part of a £180million investment into the University’s estate to create a first class student experience. It opens for business this September but is already wowing all visitors.

Based in Eastside, The Parkside Building will provide workshops, teaching facilities, exhibition space and open environments for creative inspiration for design students from Birmingham Institute of Art and Design (BIAD), part of Birmingham City University.

The extension will also be home to a state-of-the-art media centre, part of the University’s School of Media – it will include the largest concentration of TV studios to be found between London and Salford, as well as radio studios and editing suites with industry-standard technology.

This landmark facility is a result of the close working relationship with contractor Willmott Dixon who helped turn the project’s ambitious vision into a reality.
