Curzon campus extension will house 3,000 students, lecture theatre and mock courtrooms
Willmott Dixon has been appointed to deliver a £31m extension to Birmingham City University’s Curzon Campus, which the firm completed last year.
The 9,200m2 Curzon B development will expand the universtity’s city-centre campus and include accommodation for 3,000 students, a lecture theatre and mock law courts.
Willmott Dixon said the latest appointment meant the firm would have worked on nearly £150m of projects for the university since 2011.
Peter Owen, managing director of its Midlands business said the project would make Birmingham the “university capital of England”.
Curzon B was designed by Associated Architects and is due for completion in time for the start of the 2017 academic year.
