Birmingham NIA development could require plumbing course attendees

Workers who have taken plumbing courses may find job opportunities opening up in Birmingham when a multimillion pound refurbishment takes place at the National Indoor Arena (NIA).

Although the budget has not been announced, construction work is scheduled to start in summer 2011, with a source describing to BBC News how the plan is to make the venue "exciting and contemporary".

Phil Mead, managing director of Arenas, part of NEC Group, explained to the news provider that his team intend to transform the facility, which may involve the expertise of engineers who have taken plumbing courses.

"We want our visitors not just to experience world class events, but to enjoy the experience from the moment that [they] arrive," Mr Mead was quoted as saying.

The next stage is for architects and other professionals to draw up proposals over the coming eight weeks.

Birmingham's NIA hosts a variety of international concerts and shows, with performances by Iron Maiden, Justin Bieber and Paul Rodgers coming up in 2011.
