Designed by BDP architects, a new two-storey sports centre at Birmingham's King Edward's School will house a four-court sports hall, fitness suite, large multi-purpose area, classroom, changing facilities and large foyer area.

The main wall of the stairwell and foyer will feature raised brickwork depictions of athletes.

An internal bridge-link will give spectators access to a viewing gallery looking on to the main sports hall.

Construction on the centre, which is located next to the school’s existing playing fields, has just got under way, with the facility set to be completed in autumn 2018.

Stepnell construction director Bill Haynes said: “Our team bring significant expertise to this project and are delighted to be working in close partnership with King Edward’s School and BDP to help provide these first-rate sporting facilities for pupils and staff.”

Dr Mark Fenton, Chief Master of King Edward’s School, commented: “We are excited to be working with Stepnell on a project which will transform the sporting facilities at King Edward’s School.”
