Watch: Bouygues’ huge excavation for NHS in London

17 July 2017

Bouygues UK has completed one of London’s largest excavations. The site will be home to one of just two world-class NHS high energy proton beam therapy centres, which will treat patients with complex cancers.

The excavation measures 87m long by 67m wide and reaches a depth of 28.5m – big enough to contain the Royal Albert Hall.

Together with the Department of Health, NHS England is funding the development of two world class centres at The Christie in Manchester and UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) for NHS patients to be treated in the UK.

Patients are due to be treated at The Christie from summer next year, with UCLH following in summer 2020. When complete they will each treat up to 750 patients every year.
