Construction continues to progress for the second phase of STEAMhouse, Birmingham City University’s centre for collaborative innovation.
The building will be opening in 2021 with state-of-the-art teaching, production space, co-working and incubation, featuring facilities for immersive technology, the latest Wifi and 5G.
“Works to the new STEAMhouse building on Belmont Row are progressing well during these unprecedented times. The underpinning works to the locally listed Belmont Works building has been completed and the steelwork frame to this historic building has now commenced. The new build concrete frame to the rear of the building is now constructed to the third floor with the vertical columns and walls progressing from the third floor to the fourth floor. Over the upcoming months, the new build façade will commence in addition to the mechanical and electrical services installation.” Nicola Callanan, Specialist Project Manager, Estates at BCU, stated, “This is an exciting project for Birmingham City University leading to opportunities for students, graduates and businesses alike.”
STEAMhouse will continue to build on the excellent work and commitment from the STEAMhouse team and partners so far. It will be a supportive space to amplify, experiment, and develop knowledge, products and services, inspired through our STEAM approach and an established community of practice. The new facility enables Birmingham City University to bring STEAMhouse to the heart of the economy as we look forward to expanding support and reaching out to an even wider range of individuals in the years to come.
