'STEAMhouse: From Concept to Completion'
A look at the design process and the delivery of the STEAMhouse building for Birmingham City University.
STEAMhouse is a unique landmark project for Birmingham City University that creates an environment which fosters innovation, collaboration and learning, marrying together academia, the arts and the commercial world. This is a commercial development with a difference, where the eclectic mix of occupants, including students, artists, start-ups, SMEs and larger commercial businesses are brought together and are gently encouraged to collaborate without impacting on their independence and autonomy.
Its presence is designed to help retain talent in the city and encourage innovation of all kinds in all sectors, creating a brighter future for individuals who engage and participate, and for the city of Birmingham as a whole.
