Synopsis

The topic of presentation is a City South development for Birmingham City University.

The project is currently on site and is to be completed in May 2018. The focus of the presentation will be on the University Estates’ approach to asset management, BIM and technological innovations. It will give an overview of the project and will describe our design approach to create a single academic space in a diverse multi-disciplinary faculty and the management of the engagement process for the new university courses.

City South development comprises of a new academic facility and a public realm and will enable the education of a whole new generation of health, nutrition, biomedical science professionals and teachers.

The project will provide accommodation for the existing, co-located and newly-formed University’s schools to create a new Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences. It will give the faculty a collective identity by adding a confident piece of contemporary architecture on to its City South Campus which – both externally and internally – creates a coherent relationship with the current facilities. The existing structure will be reconfigured to ease navigation, linking new to existing via a covered courtyard, creating a single Faculty with one shared entrance, encouraging collaboration between the different disciplines that use the site.

The design team have worked closely with the University’s Estates team who’s up-to-date knowledge of BIM technologies and approach to asset management make BCU a market leader in BIM use and understanding.
