The new building, developed with funding from UCLH and the British Department of Health, will be built in close proximity to UCLH’s Cancer Centre and radiotherapy services, creating a leading hub for cancer treatment in central London.
The proton beam therapy facility will be located underground, and there will be five additional floors above ground offering care and treatment of blood cancer and short stay surgery. Bouygues Travaux Publics will contribute its expertise for the underground element of the project, which involves excavation of 28 metres as well as the installation of the latest proton beam therapy equipment – weighing around 120 tonnes per gantry.
The project will achieve the “BIM Exemplar” label, attesting to its exemplary use of BIM (Building Information Modelling). It will also be targeting BREEAM® certification with “Excellent” status.
Site visit will include the superstructure of the building looking at the various type of facades and internal fit-out of the hospital.
The tour will not include a visit to the basement areas due the commissioning process of the Proton Beam Therapy equipment.
