What is STEAM?

STEAM is at the heart of everything we do. Our activities bring together the five STEAM disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics to create new ways of thinking, design innovative solutions, and support the development of unique products, services, and strategies for our STEAMhouse community.

STEAMhouse: the beginning

STEAMhouse, powered by Birmingham City University, launched in 2018 in a converted warehouse in Digbeth, Birmingham. Following our success with supporting the development and growth of regional businesses by sharing our knowledge, skills, and facilities through collaborative activities, we are now expanding our support offer, our community, and our environment by redeveloping the Belmont Works Building in the centre of Birmingham, just a few minutes walk from the planned HS2 rail station, to rehome the next stage of our venture.

STEAMhouse: the future

Due to open early 2022, our new home will deliver an unrivaled range of unique business support activities, reveal brand new and improved business development facilities, and offer bigger and better opportunities for our collaborative community to experiment, test, and develop new knowledge, skills, and successes with like-minded businesses, organisations, and innovators.

STEAMhouse facilities and business support

The STEAMhouse community will have access to a wide range of business support services including coworking and meeting spaces, state-of-the-art production space and prototyping facilities, a digital hub connecting users with future technologies such as AR (Augmented Reality), VR (Virtual Reality), and 5G testbeds and trials.

The STEAMhouse community will also have access to a range of collaborative, cross-disciplinary business support activities including workshops, courses, events, and networking.
