Critical Airflow Europe Ltd were selected to provide and implement a comprehensive pressure independent Phoenix airflow control system to accurately maintain the environmental integrity of the laboratory spaces within the new £50m Birmingham Dental Hospital & School of Dentistry. The state of the art facility at Pebble Mill, is the first integrated, stand-alone dental hospital and dental school to be built in the UK for almost 40 years.

The development of the 1.23-hectare (3.05-acre) site will see a new four-storey dental hospital and school of dentistry constructed, with a build cost of £50m. Totalling 15,465 square meter, the site will house a range of services for the public, including walk-in emergency dental care, Restorative Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Orthodontics and Paediatric Dentistry.

MEP Consultants Couch Perry Wilkes have been instrumental in ensuring that energy efficiency targets have been met, delivering a scheme that has achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’ and Top A EPC rating.
