Bouygues UK to build new London cancer facility for UCLH

Bouygues UK has won a £190m contract to design and build a new central London hospital dedicated to cancer treatment.

The contract was awarded by University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which received Department of Health funding for the project.

The new facility will be built close to UCLH’s existing cancer centre and radiotherapy services, creating London’s leading cancer treatment hubs.

Work has already begun onsite, with the centre expected to be ready to receive patients from 2019.

The underground proton beam facility will be developed along with five additional floors above ground offering care for blood cancer patients and short-stay surgery.

Bouygues subsidiary Bouygues Travaux Publics will assist with the underground project, involving 25 m of excavation and the installation of the 120 tonnes of proton beam therapy equipment.

UCLH chief executive Sir Robert Naylor said the facility “will make a significant difference to the lives of hundreds of NHS patients every year and help us to advance our research into precision medicine”.

Bouygues UK chairman and chief executive Madani Sow said: “This latest contract highlights our enviable reputation for building first-class healthcare facilities across the capital.

“We are proud to be working with UCLH on the delivery of what will be part of a vital new, national service for NHS patients here in the UK.”
