Morgan Sindall has awarded key packages on the £18m extension to the University of Birmingham’s acclaimed business school.

The new wing of the business school will enable its team of 103 staff members to co-locate from five separate buildings

The project involves construction of a four-storey, 34,000 sq ft building, connected to the Grade II-listed University House on Edgbaston Park Road.

Local firm O’Brien Contractors has picked up the groundwork and concrete foundations work, with another local firm Manstal Electrical Contracting taking the M&E works.

Duplus Architectural Systems has won the glazing and curtain walling contract.

The two-part extension will comprise one building perpendicular to the existing three-storey University House, connected using an 8.5 metre wide, two-storey flat-roofed link.

The second phase of development will be built at a 30-degree angle to the first building.

The extension will benefit from extensive glazed partitions throughout, along with a spacious atrium and triple height ceiling spaces.

The University House expansion is part of The University of Birmingham’s investment of more than £600m to transform its campus between 2016 – 2026 with a series of pioneering projects designed to benefit students, staff and the local community.
