Keele is the first of the UK cyclotron building designed by Scott Tallon Walker. The facility incorporates a P.E.T. scanning dock designed with Alliance Medical to take a mobile P.E.T. scanner as well as a cGMP production facility for the radiotracer (F.D.G.) used in P.E.T. scanning. 


The brief was to design a building to house these complex requirements within a building which reflected the client’s company ethos as market leaders in quality and scientific ability in their field. 


The architecture clearly expressed two elements. A solid cube incorporating the cyclotron bunker, hot cells and plant areas is interlocked with a graceful glass pavilion which houses the people and patient spaces. The building was completed in 2005.
