Up to five firms to be shortlisted for Sutton job

The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust is looking for a contractor for the £50m job to build its new cancer treatment centre.

At least five firms are expected to be shortlisted for the BDP-designed job to build the London-based Oak Cancer Centre.


Hamish Mackenzie, who was previously a development director at Sellar, is the trust’s project director for the scheme. 

Tendering will be based on a two-stage design and build procurement route, with firms to be asked to submit a fixed price for the work.

The facility in Sutton is set to be made up of six floors and will include a terrace at roof level with a pergola and other external terraces.

The building will include clinical facilities, office space and an atrium with a feature staircase.

The gross internal floor area of the proposed building is 11,816m2.

Firms have until 4 October to register their interest, with shortlisted contractors to be contacted by 31 October. The centre, which was handed a £25m gift from the philanthropic Oak Foundation last year, is due to open in 2021.
