Stortford Interiors (UK) Limited has recently been awarded the internal partitions and ceilings package by ISG at the Oak Cancer Centre development for The Royal Marsden Trust.
This striking new building, at the gateway to the world-renowned cancer hospital and research centre’s Sutton site, will provide new outpatient facilities, medical day-care and collaboration space for clinical researchers to accelerate cancer diagnosis and treatment for patients. Named in recognition of Oak Foundation, which donated £25 million to the cost of this new centre of excellence, The Oak Cancer Centre will bring together over 400 researchers from across The Royal Marsden’s Sutton and Chelsea sites, in a building designed to stimulate collaboration and speed up
the development of new cancer treatments.
The new six-storey, 134,000 sq. ft concrete frame building is targeting a BREEAM Excellent environmental performance rating and will become the centrepiece of an ambitious plan, alongside academic partner, The Institute of Cancer Research, to create a £1 billion cancer research campus – The London Cancer Hub, in Sutton. Designed to bring patients and researchers closer together to drive innovation in treatments and outcomes, floor layouts and the high specification materials used throughout the building have been carefully selected with the patient experience at the heart of the process. At ground floor level a large full height atrium floods the reception heart space of The Oak Cancer Centre with natural light. A saw tooth roof design allows light to enter the building, whilst providing space for a large photovoltaic array to generate emission free electricity.
The award represents an opportunity for Stortford Interiors to continue its growing presence in the Healthcare sector, building on an on-going trading relationship with ISG. We look forward to working closely with the ISG and Trust’s teams to deliver an ultimately fantastic development which will make a difference to many people over the coming years.
