Provision of temporary access for 10-storey £150m replacement Paterson Building construction project at The Christie Hospital.
Due to the former Paterson Building at the Christie Hospital being destroyed by fire, primary contractor Integrated Health Projects, a joint venture between Vinci and Sir Robert McAlpine, is constructing a £150m replacement building designed by BDP on the same footprint site. The new mixed ten and seven-storey purpose-built 26,874m² biomedical facility will be twice the size of the previous Paterson Building and house several hundred staff members.
The new world-class transformational research facility is a joint development by The University of Manchester, Cancer Research UK and The Christie. Once constructed, the facility will bring together the largest concentration of scientists, doctors and nurses in Europe to collaborate and accelerate progress for cancer patients.
