Encouraging report for PFI hospital distorted


Your coverage of CABE's review of Birmingham's new PFI hospital (AJ 26.8.04) is a distortion of its report. The acute hospital is now said by CABE to be 'a far more convincing project', which is 'developing in a promising way'. It adds that the hospital 'should be a candidate for the Prime Minister's Better Public Building Award' and that CABE is 'optimistic that this could be achieved'.

There is still much to be done, but CABE's comments are very positive and encourage us to think we are getting there, in sharp contrast to its views on other projects.

Richard Saxon, director, BDP
