University College Birmingham Breaks Ground on Teaching and Sports Science Building

University College Birmingham broke ground in January of 2018 on a £29 million teaching and sports science facility in the United Kingdom. Accommodating both graduate and undergraduate programs, the four-story, 91,500-sf building will provide eight classrooms, three 100-seat lecture halls, faculty and staff offices, and flexible learning spaces. The facility will feature a spacious dining area, an advanced gymnasium, and a 115-ft indoor running track for performance and speed assessments. The project, which will include a 160-space parking garage, will be designed and built by Kier Group. Occupancy is expected in fall of 2019. The facility is part of University College Birmingham’s £100 million redevelopment of its campus in the historic Jewellery Quarter.
