A contract to supply products for Birmingham Dental Hospital & School of Dentistry – the UK’s first new integrated dental hospital and school for nearly 40 years – has gone to Security Solutions, a division of the product manufacturer ASSA ABLOY UK.
The new site will house public services including walk-in emergency dental care, restorative, oral surgery, oral medicine, orthodontics and paediatric dentistry delivered by Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust. As home to the University of Birmingham’s School of Dentistry, it will take more than 600 undergraduate and postgraduate students and trainees. This development at the former home of BBC Pebble Mill studios was granted detailed planning permission in December 2012.
Security Solutions has scheduled 500 timber door sets and architectural ironmongery, including Laminate faced doors with painted frames, besides Scanflex door furniture.
ASSA products supplied to the project include ASSA’s P600 cylinders and modular rack and pinion door closers, as well as cam motion door closers that will fulfil the Equality Act 2010.
David Shield, Specification Development Manager at ASSA ABLOY UK, said: “We are looking forward to playing our part in the regeneration of Pebble Mill as a world class healthcare destination. We have worked closely with the building’s contractors, to ensure the security solutions we install will fit in with the building’s strong visual identity.”
