Creating New Learning Spaces and Opportunities at Birmingham City University

Briggs & Forrester Engineering Services have recently completed works on Birmingham City University’s ‘City South’ Campus.

The project included an extension to the City South Phase 3 Campus, partial refurbishment of the existing Seacole Building, and external landscaping works.

The City South Campus houses a number of faculties; the School of Education and the new School of Health Sciences, as well as new facilities for teacher training, nutrition sciences labs, therapy clinics and other general teaching spaces.

The services provided by Engineering Services include low pressure heating, displacement ventilation, BMS, CHP, comfort cooling, electrical distribution, small power, fire alarm, data, security, ISC smart building, photovoltaic, lighting and audio visual installation.

Phil Green, Regional Design Manager said: “The effective design and installation of highly efficient building services systems, including the provision of low and zero carbon technologies, has resulted in BCU City South achieving a 30% reduction in CO2 emissions against the Building Regulations Part L2A target.

In conjunction with a highly efficient building envelope, this has resulted in an overall EPC A rating and has made a significant contribution to the building achieving an overall BREEAM 2011 ‘Excellent’ Rating. ”

Engineering Services worked closely with BAM Construct UK, Couch Perry Wilkes and Sheppard Robson to deliver this project.
