The Curzon Building Birmingham University


A state-of-the-art addition to the City Centre Campus — is now open and is home to our Business, English, Law and Social Sciences students. The 24,300m² Curzon Building, which is the second phase of our City Centre Campus expansion, provides a student support hub as well as a new library, teaching and IT space, plus other student-facing facilities.


The construction of The Curzon Building also saw the complete 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. We completed the structural steelwork on this complex project on behalf of Willmott Dixon Construction and it involved working between and above the new insitu concrete structure.
