Birmingham City University is expanding its campus to accommodate more students and staff. The new teaching and learning campus will provide 100,000 square feet of additional state-of-the-art design for the University's existing city centre campus courses.
The new building, designed by Birmingham-based Associated Architects, will be an extension to the £63 million Curzon Building, and will cater to the needs of the institution's growing student numbers.
One of the features of the new building is the use of aluminium composite material (ACM) window pods. These pods are designed to provide a modern and sleek look to the building. The ACM is cut using CNC and press brake, and fabricated into an airplane wing design. The window pods are complemented by window surround pressings and sills, which provide a seamless finish to the windows. The pre-painted brass brushed finish adds a touch of elegance to the building, making it stand out from other buildings in the area.
Overall, the expansion of Birmingham City University's campus is an exciting development for the institution, and the use of innovative design features, such as the ACM window pods, will help to create a modern and vibrant learning environment for students and staff.
