Progress on new hospital build is celebrated at topping out event
More than 100 guests donned their hard hats and gathered on site at the new Circle Birmingham Hospital in Edgbaston today, for a ceremony to mark the project’s progress.
Guests of honour attending the event at the former Pebble Mill site included the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Councillor Yvonne Mosquito and Councillor Dierdre Alden. The ceremony included the unveiling of a plaque to mark the ‘topping out’ stage of the build.
The hospital, which is being built by Simons Group, will be complete in Summer 2019 and will be the second largest private hospital in the UK. It will be an addition to Circle Health’s other hospitals in Bath, Nottingham and Reading.
Guests including surgeons and other health professionals, along with all site workers who were invited to down tools especially for the event, watched the ceremonial unveiling.
