Scott Tallon Walker

Award winning practice Scott Tallon Walker Architects with Edward Williams Architects & Tsoi Kobus & Associates have been appointed for the development of a £250m scheme for University College London Hospitals.

The central London project will incorporate the world’s most advanced form of radiotherapy, Proton Beam Therapy, after the government today announced up to £250 million of funding to bring this innovative technology to the UK.

The joint proposal with The Christie Hospital in Manchester, will offer the first PBT service in the UK, allowing unparalleled access for patients and their families from all over the UK. Around 1,500 patients will be treated with Proton Beam Therapy, every year.

The UK service will bring together some of the world’s leading specialists in complex cancers. Together, UCLH & The Christie will see more children and teenagers with cancer than almost any other centre in the world, and more adults with brain cancers than any other centre in the UK.

The two trusts will also be able to drive forward research into what remains a relatively new treatment. In addition the proposed scheme will incorporate clinical space for other Hospital departments as part of the overall development

Plans to develop an event centre on the site of the old Beamish and Crawford site has been given the green light by An Bord Pleanála.

The site of the proposed development occupies the decommissioned Beamish and Crawford Brewery located on South Main Street in the old medieval centre of Cork City.

The scheme by Scott Tallon Walker Architects has been designed along strong urban design principles of reintroducing a variety of Public Spaces and permeability to this large riverfront site. The urban design strategy unlocks the site to the public by re-opening two long extinct medieval laneways and introducing a wide variety uses to create significant street frontage activity. This will provide a much needed boost to this very historic, but long neglected quarter of the city. The centrepiece of the development will be the creation of a new formal square off South Main Street, which will provide a suitable setting for the protected Counting House structure.

The original Carroll's Factory which was completed in 1970 has received architectural recognition as one of Irelands finest modern industrial buildings designed in a Mesian style, and is a designated protected structure.

The modernist landmark has been reborn for Dundalk IT as an avant garde exemplar of wind energy storage and an ingenious approach to integrated heating, ventilation and cooling, as sustainable design expert Chris Croly of BDP explains.

Important features include airtightness improvement of an existing building, the innovative selection of an unusual insulation and airtight layer location, the use of significant load sensing controls to limit plant loads, the use of an ice bank renewable energy storage linked to an on-site wind turbine, and a grid smoothing system. The use of building controls to regulate and smooth building electrical energy demand, providing an example of one possible response to smart metering.

This project clearly demonstrates that there is a potential for buildings to play a significant role in adapting Ireland’s electrical demand to be more suitable for the integration of wind energy

University College Cork’s (UCC) Western Gateway Building has won the Renewable Energy Award at the official launch of the Sustainable Energy Awards 2011 held in the Sheraton Hotel, Athlone on Thursday 14th April 2011.

The Western Gateway Building is the largest building on the UCC Complex at 25,000m² (269,100ft²) providing research and teaching accommodation for a range of academic departments such as Computer Science, Biochemistry, Mathematics, Pharmacology, Physiology, ICT and Cancer Research

Judges description: Excellent design, utilising waste heat from computer room combined together with a ground source heat pump to provide a combination of heating and cooling to the UCC Western Gateway building. This strategy, combined with an modern controls package, utilises the most efficient combination based on demand and supply. It has achieved energy savings of 30% when compared to other buildings on the campus.

The annual Sustainable Energy Awards are intended to encourage, recognise and reward excellence in energy management in the industrial, commercial and public sectors. The awards will focus on individuals, groups and organisations who demonstrate a commitment to include energy management as part of their overall management structure and provide an opportunity for organisations, regardless of size, to gain public recognition for their achievements in reducing energy use and emissions. This is the eighth year of this national initiative which is the only awards scheme recognising best practice in energy performance, management and design.


Now in its 27th month of construction, the Scott Tallon Walker-designed extension to the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital is over 80% complete, and is due for completion in the first quarter of 2012.

It is one of the largest and most advanced healthcare projects ever undertaken in Ireland; and furthermore one that has taken place, not on a greenfield site, but on a constrained inner-city campus immediately adjacent to an important acute hospital and a renowned private hospital.

It is anticipated that the new Mater extension will allow the hospital to carry out its critical role in the delivery of healthcare in ‘state of the art’ clinical accommodation suitable for the 21st century, and in surroundings which will uplift and inspire staff and patients alike.
