The Innovation Birmingham campus is set to be expanded – as Birmingham City Council approve plans for a new £30m project.

The new £30m ‘Enterprise Wharf’ scheme will expand what is already the UK’s largest dedicated digital tech campus, with more than 170 businesses working on the campus.

Bruntwood SciTech – who’re speaking on our next Birmingham Webinar – are leading the scheme which will see 120,000 sq ft of new workspace to support the rapidly growing digital and tech sectors in the city.

The building will feature a large, open plan reception and collaboration space, cycle storage and kit drying room, showers and a roof garden and will be delivered alongside new outdoor breakout space, landscaping and public realm, including improved access to the adjacent Birmingham and Fazeley canal.

David Hardman, Managing Director at Bruntwood SciTech and speaker for our Birmingham Webinar, said: “The West Midlands is home to an ever-expanding digital tech ecosystem. Connecting start-ups with global corporates and the public sector is crucial to its evolution. Enterprise Wharf will help to expand our innovation community and help the sector flourish.”

Cllr Ian Ward, Leader of Birmingham City Council, added: “A thriving digital economy is essential for the city’s future and Enterprise Wharf will provide the kind of quality infrastructure that’s needed to entice established players to Birmingham, while also helping to catalyse future success stories from within our community of entrepreneurs.”
