Purpose-built facilities supporting those in need
Modern and streamlined, the new home of the Peter MacCullum Cancer Centre officially opened in July 2016.
This $1 billion construction houses some 96 overnight inpatient beds, 110 chemotherapy, medical and same day beds, six operating theatres, a dedicated clinical trials unit and educational training spaces. Adding to the complexity of the building is a network of link bridges which connect to four new floors on top of the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
"On time, on budget and ready to move in."
This visually stunning building required systems that would not impact its aesthetic and additionally would not cause any damage to the impressive glass facades. Access to the facades for maintenance and cleaning was provided with the installation of RAPTOR rigid rails which offer the added benefit of allowing multiple operators to work simultaneously. Strict time constraints needed to be adhered to and it was a credit to the entire construction team when the delivery of the project was completed on time and on budget.
