Birmingham Dental Hospital
Education, Healthcare and Hospitality category
Work to build the first integrated, stand-alone dental hospital and dental school began onsite in September 2013. The landmark development, led by Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust, together with its partners the University of Birmingham, Birmingham and Solihull LIFT (Bas LIFT) and Calthorpe Estates, was granted detailed planning permission in December 2012 for the site.
The development is seen as highly strategic for the city, being a key element of the new Edgbaston Medical Quarter and further enhances the city’s reputation as a hub of Medicine, Learning and Life Sciences. The development of the site has seen a new four-storey dental hospital and school of dentistry constructed, with a build cost of £34m. Totalling 15,465 square meters, it will house a range of services for the public including walk-in emergency dental care, Restorative Dentistry, Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Orthodontics and Paediatric Dentistry.
