Sandwell Council alongside Carillion are holding a special event on Thursday 19 November 2015, enabling local businesses like yours to meet the architects and specifiers charged with designing the new Midland Metropolitan Hospital (MMH).

As you may know, Smethwick is soon to be transformed with an estimated £1bn of investment, including the state-of-the-art MMH. In the coming months Carillion, the preferred bidder, will need advanced medical technologies, built environment materials, clinical equipment and innovations.

The opportunities could be huge for clued-up product designers and engineers with the skills, resources and ingenuity to meet Carillion’s design challenges.

To help you get involved (and, in turn, boost our region’s economy) Sandwell Council’s West Midlands Virtual Hospital team is holding a free product demonstrator and informal CPD ‘Meet the Midland Metropolitan Hospital Architects’ day in Smethwick on Thursday 19 November.
