London Clinic, Cancer Centre

A substantial building on Marylebone Road has been the imposing home of the London Clinic for 75 years. We have recently completed a major new cancer centre, which also acts as a new deliveries and servicing hub for the entire hospital. It is linked to the 1932 hospital by a new tunnel under Devonshire Place.

This was a highly complex project for which we were responsible for civil and structural engineering design and highways and transport issues. The new building, for example, houses lined linear accelerator bunkers in a 15m deep basement. In addition, an adjoining listed Georgian town house has been restored and integrated into the scheme. The tremendous constraints of the site added to the challenge, with a major road artery, the Circle and Metropolitan underground line and extensive services just a few metres away.
