Specialist Hospital Facility, Birmingham
Speedclad is carrying out the design, supply and installation of the integrated cladding and curtain walling façade on a new facility at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
The new hospital facility is being built on the Queen Elizabeth Hospital campus in Birmingham, in a partnership between HCA Healthcare UK and University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust. The £100million scheme will create a 138-bed facility to provide acute care to private patients, as well as additional capacity and access to specialist facilities for NHS patients.
The 8-storey, 14,728 sqm building will include state-of-the-art operating theatres and a radiotherapy unit and is expected to be completed in 2022. The facility will provide services for cardiology, cancer, urology, orthopaedics, neurology, hepatobiliary and stem cell transplantation, with provision of the very latest technology for complex surgical and medical procedures and treatments.
Speedclad’s contract, for Vinci Construction, is for the design, supply and installation of 4250m2 of GRC cladding from Telling Architectural, in both standard and polished finishes, as well as the fully built-up Kawneer curtain walling system to the primary concrete structure, and all associated items.
