McIntrye House, Holland Street, Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham
Community Open Evening – Wednesday 4th February between 6 and 8.30pm
As part of their celebrations for the opening of McIntrye House and to thank local residents for their goodwill and patience during nearly three years of building work, University College Birmingham (UCB) invite you to join them for their Community Open Evening.
It will run between 6pm and 8.30pm. A number of their higher education students will be on hand to show people around, including viewing of their two new pieces of public art, ‘Leap of Faith’ and ‘Gravity’ by renowned sculptor Lorenzo Quinn, son of the late international film star Anthony. The evening will be a chance to view the new building, to hear about UCBs plans for the next phase and to enjoy a celebratory drink and a light buffet.
If you would like to join UCB on Wednesday 4th February, please RSVP to Julie Kendall via firstname.lastname@example.org to help them gauge numbers. Or you can just turn up on the evening.
About McIntrye House and UCBs development in the JQ
UCB were very pleased to take delivery of the building in early September 2014; just in time for the beginning of their 2014/15 academic year. The building represents an initial investment of circa £26m and represents the first phase of a longer-term plan to create a new campus within the surrounding site. As a result, UCB will be making a further investment of some £40-350m between now and the end of 2019.
The University is committed to this development and they want to continue to work closely with local residents and businesses as this exciting development moves forward. UCBs aim for the next phase is to create first class teaching and learning facilities including a range of University owned and student operated outlets such as a restaurant, a delicatessen, bakery and Spa that will be open to the Community.
The Community Open Evening is the perfect opportunity to find out more about UCBs plans.
