Two existing buildings at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital have undergone a major refurbishment, to create a world- class research facility. The facility will be home to 600 clinical trial centres, and has created a focus for the Life Sciences in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
The refurbishment will provide the co-location of major clinical specialities with a clinical research facility, early-phase trial unit and hub to host pharmaceutical companies and SMEs.
The Institute of Translational Medicine (ITM) will dramatically expand therapeutic options for patients by accelerating access to new diagnostics, drugs and medical devices, putting patients at the heart of a uniquely integrated medical campus.
A new plant room has been formed, adjacent to the existing Main Steam Plant Room, to house a new Steam to Water Plate Heat Exchanger (PHE) to provide a new Constant Temperature (CT) supply to new Air Handling Units (AHU) located at roof level and routed through lower ground floor to serve the lecture theatre AHU.
