RPS designs the Birmingham children's Hospital Burns Unit in Birmingham 

The new Burns and expanded Education Centre is a striking extension to the existing Victorian Children’s Hospital in Birmingham City Centre formerly known as Birmingham general hospital up until 1995. together with Ruskin Chambers (grade II). The Birmingham Children’s Hospital Burns Unit is one of only three such centres of excellence in the country. It contains an Outpatients department, a Neo-natal Unit, a Burns ward and a Burns operating theatre, as well as additional classrooms for the Education Centre, allowing children to continue their education whilst undergoing medium to long term care in the Hospital. The design, both the inside and outside, attempts to reflect the sprit of the children, adolescents and families it also continues the tradition of quality extension that reflect the spirit of the ages have been . The building recognises the Hospital’s crucial role in their lives and attempts to empower its young patients by encouraging interaction and healing and an identifiable “home base” territory for patients, staff and visitors. The vibrant colours used were design to contrast with the terracotta buildings adjacent the position of the building provides a land mark gateway to Birmingham from the M6.
