Work begins on landmark dental hospital

Building work has begun on a new  University dental hospital and dental  school at the former BBC Pebble Mill  Studios site in Edgbaston. 

Housing a range of services for the  public plus facilities for the School’s  600 students, the £34 million,  four-storey development is set to  open in autumn 2015.

Professor Philip Lumley, Head of the  School of Dentistry, says: ‘We are thrilled  that this landmark project is finally  under way. This development is highly  strategic for the city of Birmingham,  being a key element of the new  Edgbaston Medical Quarter, and will  further enhance the city’s reputation  as a hub of medicine, learning and life sciences.’
