Steel-framed hospital for former BBC Pebble Mill site
Lincoln-based Simons Group has won a £21.85M contract to deliver a new private hospital in Birmingham for Circle Health.
The steel-framed facility will provide a large-scale rehabilitation service and will be built on the former BBC Pebble Mill site in the heart of Edgbaston’s world-renowned Medical Quarter.
The hospital is based on a flexible model, which can be adapted and expanded to meet clinical demand now and in the future. The project will be constructed over 77 weeks and includes separate consultant, clinical and hospitality functions in three distinct wings, with all departments accessed from a central atrium.
The clinical wing will contain three operating theatres, an endoscopy suite, recovery bays and a diagnostic imaging department. The main reception will be housed in the hospitality wing which offers restaurant and café areas.
Administration and staff areas are located on the first floor and an inpatients ward, with 19 single en suite bedrooms, on the second floor. The consultation wing includes 10 consultant rooms, a minor operations and treatment area along with physiotherapy and multi-activity areas.
