Building Design Partnership was commissioned to undertake the masterplan for Birmingham City University on a wonderful site that will be the centrepiece of the Eastside regeneration

It had always been the university’s intention to go through an OJEU process to select architects to design the individual buildings and we are sure the masterplan will be an inspirational springing point for firms to take it forward.

We were therefore surprised to read your headline “BDP ditched on £150m Birmingham job” which wrongly gives the impression that BDP was sacked. As masterplanners we continue to support the university to deliver its exciting vision.
