The 9,300 m2 building, being called Curzon B, sits on Cardigan Street, forming part of the city centre campus in Birmingham’s Eastside district. It is expected to be ready for use in 2018.

The new building, designed by Associated Architects, will be an extension to the £63m Curzon Building, which officially opened in September 2015 and was also built by Willmott Dixon.

Interim pro vice-chancellor Paul Hartley said: “The Curzon building only opened in September but has already picked up awards and we hope that the addition of Curzon B will be just as visually impressive as well as an equally positive environment to study in.”
