55th Particle Therapy Co-operative Group Conference
STW are the lead consultant in a team of five corporations working together to deliver the new Proton Beam Therapy unit in London.
The project team consists of STW, Campbell Reith, WSP & CCRD, Harley Haddow and Bouygues UK.
The 34,600 m2 facility is currently under construction in the heart of London at Grafton Way, next to University College of London Hospital, on Tottenham Court Road. When completed, it will offer a world-leading new radiotherapy to patients, which targets tumours more precisely.
Scott Tallon Walker Architects are pleased to announce the successful completion of a new purpose built research facility for UCLH. The NIHR UCLH Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is a facility dedicated to experimental medicine and clinical research. CRF have moved from their previous home in the A&E department of the main hospital to the 4th floor of 170 Tottenham Court Road, a 2 minute walk away. The newly remodelled space provides Clinical space, a 9 bedded bay, 7 clinical rooms, 2 single rooms with en-suites, a laboratory, a dispensing pharmacy and working space for specialist clinical and administrative staff.
The facility provides a coordinated infrastructure to support patients and volunteers and help clinical investigators to conduct clinical research safely, efficiently and cost-effectively.
No. 170 Tottenham Court Road was originally designed as an office block so accommodating the services for clinical and research use, and providing an accessible and welcoming department, presented a major challenge for STW and the engineers.
Additional plant room space was required on the floor and part of the basement car park was utilised for storage and changing areas. We worked closely with the users to ensure their furniture and equipment could be accommodated and to build a department that met stringent clinical standards whilst using colours and finishes to enhance the bright friendly atmosphere. The project was constructed to a tight deadline and the client was very happy it was completed on time, to such a high standard.
