Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital
University of Cambridge
Northmores was appointed to prepare a high-level site option/ fit appraisal for a new Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital (CCRH) at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
We were selected for this strategic commission due to our extensive knowledge of the CBC site and its infrastructure having previously been client-side Project Managers and Lead Technical Advisors on various projects for the associated NHS Trusts who occupy the campus. The study was based on an initial Schedule of Accommodation (SoA) provided by the University of Cambridge.
This appraisal delivered test fit options for a new build Cancer Hospital (CCRH) of circa 28,000m² (GIA) on three potential sites within the masterplan and reviewed clinical, engineering, planning, contractual and cost interfaces for each arriving at a recommendation which has since been taken forward by the University of Cambridge and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as the selected site for this prestigious development.
