MOBILE CHEMOTHERAPY UNIT

Austin-Smith:Lord was commissioned by Tenovus Cancer Care to develop a state of the art design for a new mobile chemotherapy unit that will allow cancer patients across South Wales to receive the best possible treatment closer to home. A thorough consultation process was used to identify the needs and aspirations of all types of users of the unit, taking into account the standards and requirements of the staff as well as the patients. The final design took into account the latest research into cancer care and treatment, patient recovery, and wellbeing of all users.

Mobile Chemotherapy Treatment Unit

Austin-Smith:Lord was commissioned by Tenovus Cancer Care to develop a state of the art design for a new mobile chemotherapy unit that will allow cancer patients across South Wales to receive the best possible treatment closer to home. A thorough consultation process was used to identify the needs and aspirations of all types of users of the unit, taking into account the standards and requirements of the staff as well as the patients. The final design took into account the latest research into cancer care and treatment, patient recovery, and wellbeing of all users.

The design had to take into account restrictions and constraints due to the nature of the moving unit. Through consultations and discussion with the specialist coach-builder contractors and client, we were able to push the boundaries of what is possible, to create a final design that is truly ground-breaking and fit for purpose.

THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX, INSIDE THE BOX (PART II)

Tenovus Cancer Care has over ten years of experience in providing mobile cancer treatment space, enabling people to have support in the community, closer to home. Our work with Austin-Smith:Lord has helped us to take our latest Mobile Support Unit to the next level, resulting in the world’s largest mobile chemotherapy unit. Their expertise has helped us build on both patient and health professionals’ feedback, to create what is a genuinely wonderful mobile facility, and one that will ensure that we continue to be safe, practical and beautiful. While we live in a world where people need to have cancer treatment, this innovative space is helping to make sure that when people do come on board our units for treatment, they have the best experience that they possibly can.

The Client was intent on managing the building during its lifetime through its Archibus CAFM software updating the asset model with up to date information where it will be used for future projects as buildings are modified over time to suit changing needs.

    With a multi-disciplinary appointment, Austin-Smith:Lord led a design team decision to use BIM collaboration processes on a new 800 pupil building on the Aberdare Campus in south Wales. We were responsible for architectural and landscape output, and this was produced in Revit with the highways and below ground drainage information provided by the Engineer in 3D dwg format. The site was particularly susceptible to possible flooding, so extensive flood risk analysis was undertaken using the 3D models to create a highly accurate composite of the completed building and associated landscape features.
