55th Particle Therapy Co-operative Group Conference

STW are the lead consultant in a team of five corporations working together to deliver the new Proton Beam Therapy unit in London.

The project team consists of STW, Campbell Reith, WSP & CCRD, Harley Haddow and Bouygues UK.

The 34,600m2 facility is currently under construction in the heart of London at Grafton Way, next to University College of London Hospital, on Tottenham Court Road. When completed, it will offer a world-leading new radiotherapy to patients, which targets tumours more precisely.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Scott Tallon Walker Architects were appointed as Design & Build architects as part of the Belfast based Lagan Group and Portuguese Somague-Engenharia Joint Venture Team for the design development and construction of the new 66,000 sq.m. Ulster University campus. The building concept design was by Fielden Clegg Bradley Studios.

  

  

This project over trebles the size of the existing Ulster University Campus, and continues the return of Ulster University back into the city of Belfast, and into the Cathedral Quarter from its campus in Jordanstown (some 11 Km north of Belfast). The project includes new accommodation for five faculties, a new library and new student’s facilities, as well as alterations to the existing university buildings.

The scheme comprises a double basement with building blocks up to 11 stories in height that are interconnected at the lower levels, and a bridge over York Street connecting the new development to the existing University Building.

Construction on site commenced in mid 2016. Presently, the 30,000 cu.m. basement is now excavated with slabs and liner walls having been poured, as well as the adjacent building having reached 2nd floor level.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

STW are pleased to announce the successful completion of a new purpose built research facility for UCLH. The NIHR UCLH Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is a facility dedicated to experimental medicine and clinical research. CRF have moved from their previous home in the A&E department of the main hospital to the 4th floor of 170 Tottenham Court Road, a 2 minute walk away. The newly remodelled space provides Clinical space, a 9 bedded bay, 7 clinical rooms, 2 single rooms with en-suites, a laboratory, a dispensing pharmacy and working space for specialist clinical and administrative staff.

The facility provides a coordinated infrastructure to support patients and volunteers and help clinical investigators to conduct clinical research safely, efficiently and cost-effectively.

No. 170 Tottenham Court Road was originally designed as an office block so accommodating the services for clinical and research use, and providing an accessible and welcoming department, presented a major challenge for STW and the engineers.

Additional plant room space was required on the floor and part of the basement car park was utilised for storage and changing areas. We worked closely with the users to ensure their furniture and equipment could be accommodated and to build a department that met stringent clinical standards whilst using colours and finishes to enhance the bright friendly atmosphere. The project was constructed to a tight deadline and the client was very happy it was completed on time, to such a high standard.

A planning application is due to be lodged for a new €10m international literary centre in the heart of Dublin. The Ulysses Centre, which is a partnership between UCD and the National Library of Ireland, is due to open at Newman House on St Stephen's Green in 2018.

The new centre will include a permanent exhibition space in the currently unused Aula Maxima, originally the university's main hall.

Architects Scott Tallon Walker have produced a design for linking the Aula Maxima to the other Newman House buildings to improve access.

Failte Ireland has provided a €2.5m grant towards funding the centre, with a "substantial" philanthropic donation coming from Martin and Carmel Naughton.

UCD says the Ulysses Centre will be a "rich resource for visitors to Dublin who will enjoy immersing themselves in a wonderful literary experience".

The First NHS Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) Facility in the UK has started on site at Tottenham Court Road in London. Scott Tallon Walker (in association with Edward Williams architects) have led the design of this flagship project for University College London Hospital, from its initial feasibility stage.

The £200m Building will be a total of 34,500 sq.m, 4 floors (30 m) below ground housing the PBT gantries and six floors of short stay oncology surgical centre, including 8 Operating Theatres, diagnostic imaging services and 135 inpatient beds overhead.

The Design has been assessed as BREEAM Excellent and is a UK Government Exemplar Project for the use of BIM Level 2.

Proton Beam Therapy is the worlds most advanced form of radiotherapy which uses a precision high-energy beam of particles to destroy cancer cells.
