Commercial property consultancy GVA has secured two buildings for the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust as part of the relocation of some 300 staff from its Selly Oak site.
The period Yardley Court, in Frederick Road, has 22,500 sq ft of refurbished office accommodation over four floors and the adjacent Regent Court, in George Road, provides 50,000 sq ft, also over four floors.
Both buildings have been taken on a long-leasehold basis and are located on adjacent plots close to Five Ways station.
Cliff Ewan, commercial director at UHB, said: "We needed to remain close to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and wanted our staff to be able to have access to as many bus and train routes as possible. Therefore these buildings are absolutely ideal for us."
George Jennings, associate at GVA, added: "It was clear from our initial conversations that the NHS were looking for a long-term solution with a requirement for modern office space in an easily accessible location so purchasing something in Edgbaston was by far the most effective solution."
The relocation of the staff is scheduled to be completed by the end of the first quarter in 2015.
While Yardley Court was sold with vacant possession, the NHS will be sharing space at Regent Court with two existing occupiers, both of which occupy suites of 8,000 sq ft on the part first and ground floors respectively.
