Alan Walters Building, University of Birmingham

The Alan Walters Building provides the Birmingham Business School at the University of Birmingham with a dedicated facility for their Postgraduate, MBA and Executive programmes. This includes a specialist 100 seat Harvard-style lecture theatre and a mock trading room, a traditional 200 seat raked lecture theatre, and a range of teaching rooms. The inclusion of informal social learning spaces - and programme support offices - ensures the new building serves as both the social and academic base for postgraduate students.

"BGS were a pleasure to work with - they created a teaching and working space that is being credited as the best in the University – but I suspect better than most in many others too!"
- Professor Andy Lymer, Deputy Head (Associate Dean), Business School
