The landmark building has being torn down as part of a demolition programme to make way for a 36,000 sq m world-class research and development facility for the medical and healthcare industries.

Regional development agency Advantage West Midlands has a 95 year lease on the site. Advantage West Midlands Chief Executive John Edwards said: "The demolition of Pebble Mill is the first step on the way to creating what will undoubtedly be a world-class facility, building on Birmingham's excellence in medical technologies.

"This marks the end of one era with a building that has defined Birmingham in many ways, but also marks the dawning of a new high-technology era for the city."
