Plans unveiled for new Birmingham health campus

Plans have been revealed for a new health innovation and research campus in Birmingham with a development value of £210m.

The Birmingham Health Innovation Campus is set to provide 657,000 square feet of lab, office and incubation space across the 10-acre former metalworks site. It will include a 33,000 square foot six-storey building, which will house a new innovation centre running clinical trials, known as the Precision Health Technologies Accelerator. It will be delivered on the former Battery Park in Selly Oak. It will also provide space for businesses working in medtech, diagnostics and digital healthcare.

Developer Bruntwood SciTech, a JV between Bruntwood and Legal & General, has joined a partnership with the University of Birmingham and two NHS Foundation Trusts – University Hospitals Birmingham and Birmingham Women’s and Children’s – to deliver the project.
