£37m campus library for Birmingham University

The University of Birmingham is to go ahead with building a £37m new library building at its Edgbaston campus.

22 March 2013

Construction Enquirer reports that the university has posted prequalification documents on its bid portal setting out plans for the 130,000 sq ft flagship library project.

The planned six-storey building will replace the former 1950s library that is to be demolished.

The new library has been designed to be highly energy efficient and will cut current consumption in half. Construction will begin in 2014.

Design concepts can be seen on the Construction Enquirer website.
