BDP wins Prime Minister's Better Public Building Award

The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton, East Sussex, designed by BDP, has won the Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award this year.

Known locally as the ‘Alex’, the hospital has been offering paediatric care for the last 120 years. BDP’s new building, by Japanese construction firm, Kajima, has delivered three times the floor area of the old hospital and double the beds.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown said: ‘This is an outstanding achievement and I congratulate everyone involved in building the Royal Alexandra, from design through to construction.

‘It shows what can be achieved when high-quality design is coupled with effective delivery.’
