We end our spotlight campaign on modern methods of construction (MMC) with the NEC-procured Cancer Centre at Guy's Hospital. The 14-storey building on a confined triangular site was designed to be a ‘hospital that does not feel like a hospital’. Architects ROGERS STIRK HARBOUR + PARTNERS CHARITABLE FOUNDATION LIMITED and Stantec’s competition-winning design provides four themed ‘villages’ on 14 triangular floors, with each village offering a unique range of clinical and care spaces. There is also a cancer research centre on the ninth floor. The offsite processes enabled the construction of the cancer centre's 14 floors to proceed rapidly and efficiently. Design and construction made extensive use of building information modelling (BIM) and offsite manufacture, with level 2 BIM used throughout and over 50% of the structure being factory-made for rapid assembly on site. Client Guy's and St Thomas'​ NHS Foundation Trust let the detailed design and construction of the unique building to Laing O'Rourke under a £100 million NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract Option A (priced contract with activity schedule). AECOM was appointed as project manager with Arup as engineer. #modularconstruction #modulardesign #offsiteconstruction #mmc #modular #nhs #fromthearchive
