The Project

The brand new £70 million state-of-the-art cancer centre will bring together over 400 researchers from across The Royal Marsden’s Sutton and Chelsea sites, in a building designed to stimulate collaboration and speed up the development of new cancer treatments. The six storey 134,000 sq ft construction is targeting a BREEAM Excellent environmental performance rating and will become the centrepiece of an ambitious plan, alongside academic partner, The Institute of Cancer Research, to create a £1 billion cancer research campus – The London Cancer Hub.

The Solution

With technical design capability and experience in the successful delivery of major healthcare ventilation projects being key partnership drivers, Mansfield Pollard were engaged to design, manufacture and install 12 precision air handling units, serving all areas of the development contributing to the delivery of a BREEAM rating of EXCELLENT

The air handling units were required to provide critical ventilation to all areas of the £70million Oak Cancer Centre, including Oncology, Endoscopy and Chemotherapy.  Each air handling unit was individually manufactured to achieve and maintain specific conditions to optimise air quality and protect both patients and staff dependent upon hygiene requirements.

With continuous operation, quality and energy efficiency being the key project drivers, Mansfield Pollard engineered each AHU to be HTM 03-01 compliant with build in redundancy and undertake stringent FAT tests including leakage testing to L2, volumetric and acoustic testing. Outstanding hygiene is guaranteed via extended drain trays, stainless steel & laminate internal panels, tailor made base frames and specialised coils.

The Highlights

HTM 03-01 Compliant: Fully compliant with the required specification

N+1 Redundany: Run and standby EC fans offering the ultimate in unit reliability

Extensive Testing Suite of FAT testing including leakage, volumetric & acoustic

EC Fan Array: Offering the ultimate in flexibility and energy efficiency
