16th November 2020
CUH Radiation Oncology
7th November 2020
The new cancer treatment facility in Cork University Hospital, known as the Glandore Centre, was officially opened by Tánaiste Simon Coveney on 21st June 2019. As part of the government’s National Plan for Radiation Oncology (NPRO), the centre provides a range of services to over 2,000 patients every year in the Munster region.
Located on the CUH campus, the three storey 8,800m2 facility includes seven radiotherapy treatment rooms, diagnostic imaging, brachytherapy superficial treatment and consultation/ examination facilities.
A critical element of the CUH RO project was the construction of the concrete shielding walls to the Radiation Treatment bunkers. These bunkers were constructed using a high-density concrete with the walls and roofs being 2.6m thick in locations. Due to the nature of Radiation Oncology buildings the project also had very complex and heavily serviced Mechanical and Electrical installations.
The ICE Awards 2020 Gala at Home experience was hosted on 7 November with the industry coming together for a much needed night of unity and celebration to round off the year.
The Irish Construction Excellence Awards are the original and premier recognition of performance excellence for the contracting sector in Ireland. The ICE Awards provide an opportunity for the industry to showcase and reward best practice across the full range of construction disciplines and project categories.
BAM are delighted to have been awarded in the category of ‘Healthcare’ for our CUH Glandore Radiation Oncology Centre project.
