The Oak Cancer Centre brings 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. Named in recognition of Oak Foundation, which has donated £25 million to the cost of this new centre of excellence.

The Added Value 

The new six-storey, 134,000 sq. ft concrete frame building is targeting a BREEAM Excellent environmental performance rating. The centre is an integral component of the new ‘London Cancer Hub’ - an emerging ‘knowledge cluster’, which will become a global leader for cancer research, treatment, and innovation.

"The Oak Cancer Centre represents a significant advancement in bringing together clinicians, researchers and patients in an environment that positively supports collaboration. Technology has been a key facilitator during the construction phase, with cutting-edge visualisation tools used to spatially plan and maximise patient and clinician outcomes, and this will then follow through into the operation of the building and the use of ground breaking diagnostic and treatment technologies."
