The Build

The Curzon Building was the second phase of Birmingham City University’s city centre campus in 2015. It houses business, English, law and social sciences students and provides a student support hub plus new library, teaching and IT space. Construction also saw the restoration of a Victorian pub, The Eagle and Ball, which offers a unique new home to the Students Union. The Eagle and Ball pub was built between 1840 and 1850 and was known as The Moby Dick when it closed in 2007.

The client appointed Willmott Dixon for the following reasons:

  • extensive university track-record
  • know-how for live environment working
  • social investment programme for community
  • local team with impeccable construction credentials
