Excavation completed at the Proton Beam Therapy site in London

14 July 2017

The basement excavation for the Proton Beam Therapy Centre in London for UCLH has reached its deepest level below ground this week, 28.5m, after months of work.

80,000 cubic metres of ground have been removed from the site, leaving a massive hole in the ground which will be the home of the proton beam therapy equipment and patient treatment rooms, as well as surgical theatres.

Now that the excavation has been finished, preparation to start building the centre begins. The construction will be combined with the installation of the medical equipment underground, which will be assembled on site.

We are proud of our involvement in this project which will have such positive impact for cancer patients in the UK.
