Firm cost consultant on new building adjacent to city's Repertory Theatre

Consultant Capita Symonds secured a £3.9m contract to build the new Birmingham library adjacent to the Repertory Theatre.

The library and the theatre will have shared facilities and ready access between the two.

A medium-sized auditorium and shared café and restaurant facilities will be included in the construction.

Specialist cost consultants and programme managers from Capita Symonds’ Birmingham office will work with the city council.

The library is set to open in 2013.
