DENTAL HOSPITAL SHORTLISTED FOR THREE AWARDS
The £50 million new Birmingham Dental Hospital and School of Dentistry has been shortlisted for a hat trick of awards at this year’s Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) West Midlands Awards.
The first development to be built on Calthorpe Estates’ Pebble Mill scheme, provides a landmark facility offering cutting-edge treatment to a patient population of around 1.5 million, while securing the future of dental training in the region for years to come.
The project was developed by BaS LIFT and has been shortlisted in the ‘Infrastructure, Community Benefit and Design through Innovation ‘categories and will be competing against other schemes in the West Midlands.
Ewan Forsyth, Development Director at BaS LIFT said; ”We couldn’t be prouder of what we have achieved with the development, however a RICS award would definitely be the icing on the cake!”
Ralph Minott, Director at Calthorpe Estates added; ”The Dental Hospital is the first project at Pebble Mill to complete and we are delighted that the exceptional standard of the facility has been recognised. Our vision is to create an outstanding centre for medical, health care and life sciences at Pebble Mill and the schemes that are just coming forward in development promise to be equally exceptional as leading facilities in the sector.”
The RICS Awards showcase the most inspirational regional initiatives and developments in land, property and construction, celebrating the achievements of professionals working in both the built and natural environment. The ceremony announcing the winners takes place on 18th May at Edgbaston Cricket Club.
