The brief

Briggs & Forrester Engineering Services were appointed to complete the design and build of a refurbishment of a 100 year old heritage building to create The Institute of Translational Medicine.

The facility provided clinical, office and research laboratories to bring together academics and practitioners from the city’s teaching hospitals and the University of Birmingham that translates world-class research directly into world-class treatments for serious conditions such as cancer and liver disease.

The Birmingham facility offers a strong identity for the ITM and provides serviced sites and accommodation for life and health sciences-related businesses as well as, crucially, a café hub, a pharmacy, office accommodation, laboratories, lecture theatre, consultant rooms and break-out spaces that fosters interaction and support high-quality clinical design trials.

As a central meeting point and working hub, it allow clinicians, academics, patient groups and industry to develop productive collaborative networks. It also facilitates the rapid assessment of cost effective new drugs and medical devices and the bespoke design of clinical trials result in effective monitoring and robust interpretation of outcomes.

What we did for this project...

We have a fully integrated design and build capability across the group, including 3D coordination and Building Information Modelling. By developing the design and being fully involved in the early stages of a project, we can provide timely design solutions and verification.

The group provides a range of specialist skills encompassing engineering, design, installation, and maintenance. The combined experience, knowledge and expertise of all five divisions enables the group to develop and implement fully-integrated solutions for some of the most complex and demanding mechanical, electrical and public health engineering installations.

We guarantee a smooth handover transition with the project team remaining the main point of contact, the development of commissioning and training plan and regular visits from our team in the months after practical completion.
