South Birmingham College building for the future
Europe’s largest and further-education development dedicated to training and education in construction is now open in Birmingham. The South Birmingham College Centre for the Built Environment represents the biggest-ever investment in skill development for the region’s construction industry. The building covers 13 200 m2 on a brownfield site in Bordesley Green. It has been built in response to incredible growth in housing and commercial development in the city and region since the 1990s, leading to more people wanting to enrol on construction courses and overwhelming current facilities. The centre incorporates 11 starter business units let at an affordable rent to students from the centre wanting to start up their own business.
