Delivering world leading healthcare using BIM
17 Oct 2019
This presentation will discuss the development of University College London Hospital Proton Therapy Centre, one of the first developments of its kind in the UK which is currently under construction and will be completed in 2020. The Design has been assessed as BREEAM Excellent and is a UK Government Exemplar Project for the use of BIM Level 2. The project includes one of London’s largest excavations at a depth of 28.5 metres, 87 metres long by 67 metres wide which is large enough contain the Royal Albert Hall. 80,000 cubic metres of ground has been removed from the site. This is the equivalent of around 640 London buses. With five storeys below ground and six above, the height of the building (including below ground) is 57 metres, making it equivalent to London’s Tower Bridge. In the basement, a 90-tonne piece of cancer-fighting equipment that will improve the lives of hundreds of cancer patients every year was carefully lowered into place in its new home. Scott Tallon Walker Architects, CampbellReith and Bouygues will discuss the challenges we have faced in modelling and coordinating amongst disciplines and how we have used Revit and Navisworks to overcome these.
