We are also in the midst of one of the most exciting and transformational campus redevelopments since the first phase of building on our Edgbaston campus was completed in 1909. The development projects, worth £606 million over a five year period, are creating outstanding new facilities which will benefit students, staff and the local community. As an institution dedicated to learning, we contribute to the growth and spread of knowledge which will help to transform the world therefore, we are building an outstanding laboratory, first-class sport centre, a striking 12 acres parkland and much more.
