Broadway Malyan is a global architecture, design and urbanism practice which designed the Bournville College campus located in Birmingham, UK, a building estimated to have cost around £66 million. The construction was supervised by the national contractor Shepherd Construction for developer St Modwen.
There are already three other buildings in the 4.2 acre campus that can house over 15,000 students with this new building having 250,000 square feet. A linear central spine reveals the classrooms while it also leads to “the street”. The street is supposed to function as the core of the College, offering access to different blocks and areas of the study areas.
The rooms that face “the street” have glazed sections. A Learning and Resource Centre will also be added to the project. The college enjoyed a grand opening where over 500 VIP guests attended the event along with local government delegates and senior officials.
