University College London Hospital Phase 4 Inpatient Hospital and Proton Beam Therapy Centre, UK HIGHLY COMMENDED - BREEAM Award
We are delighted that our Proton Beam Therapy Centre for UCLH, designed in association with Scott Tallon Walker, has been HIGHLY COMMENDED in the prestigious BREEAM Awards 2019. BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method.
Despite the technically advanced and large scale equipment in the project, the building was rated BREEAM Excellent. This is the result of good team work that lead to an excellent design solution.
The BREEAM Award citation states:
"University College London Hospital Phase 4 Inpatient Hospital and Proton Beam Therapy Centre, UK HIGHLY COMMENDED
A state of the art cancer and surgical care facility is being created in central London, involving a highly complex construction, which is partly underground. Careful building design and operation for staff productivity and patient experience are among the key priorities for this pioneering project. This is a highly complex and unique project and the judges were impressed by the evident desire to look for and exploit opportunities to make real sustainability gains in a project where the principle objectives are so determined by the processes that it accommodates. It provides inspiration to project teams to search out opportunities that are beyond the immediate functionality of the brief."
