Nick Fairham, architect director said: “BDP is delighted to have been selected to work with Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to develop their vision for the new cancer treatment centre. Our design focuses on the needs of the patients, families and staff to provide a truly supportive and flexible environment while offering state-of-the-art clinical services. The forward thinking approach the Foundation Trust has taken to the procurement of the design and site selection has maximised the opportunity to provide an uplifting and inspiring environment.”

Hampshire Hospitals Clinical Director for Cancer Services, Dr Lara Alloway, said: “We want to provide a centre which improves the experience of living with cancer for our patients, their families and friends, and which reflects the excellent care we provide. It’s really exciting to be one step closer to our goal. BDP showed their experience and knowledge by not only considering the look of the outside of the building but carefully considered how the inside of the building will feel, making it a welcoming, reassuring and comforting space for patients and their families. The team at BDP are already encouraging us to think differently and we are pleased to have appointed them to work with us on realising our vision for a new cancer treatment centre.”

The highly aspirational brief requires a building of outstanding architectural merit that positively reinforces the treatment process and integrates successfully into a hospital campus with regard for future needs. Patient care is provided in a supportive environment combined with state-of-the-art technology for clinical treatments. The aim is for the new centre to be open in 2016.

Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is funding the building and the provision of essential cancer treatment services, while the Ark Cancer Centre Charity has committed to raising an additional £5m to add the wow factor to the building and surroundings, and to provide supportive care not currently funded by the NHS.
