Shortlist Announced for Guy’s & St Thomas’ Cancer Treatment Centre Competition

The shortlisted teams for the next stage in the competition to design a new Cancer Treatment Centre for Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust have been announced. They are :

  • Woods Bagot Ltd/BDP/Brookfield Construction (UK) Ltd
  • Make Ltd/Mace Ltd/Buro Happold

  • Allies and Morrison/Devereux Architects/Kier Regional Ltd

The next stage in the competition will invite teams to come up with design proposals, and will involve workshops and one-to-one briefing sessions with the client team, clinical staff, and end users of the building. The successful design will be the one that strikes a balance that considers cost, long term value and architecture, that will generate an outstanding vision and a team that will work with the client and other key stakeholders, to see it through to completion. An honorarium is being paid to each team, and a winner will be announced in September 2010, following an extensive consultation process.
