#6 The Christie at Macclesfield - Longworth Building Services with KME
The Christie at Macclesfield benefits patients from Cheshire, the High Peak area of Derbyshire and parts of North Staffordshire who would normally have to travel long distances for their cancer treatment at The Christie. This means they will be able to receive their treatment closer to home. In addition to providing 12,500 radiotherapy appointments a year, The Christie at Macclesfield will transform cancer care, delivering local specialist access to chemotherapy, holistic support and information services, outpatient care, palliative care, counselling and complementary therapy and a wider range of clinical trials than at present.
Longworth were appointed by Vinci Construction to carry out the roofing and cladding package on the building, which included the eye catching Tecu Brass curved facade.
The complex shape of the building provided a number of challenges in regards to access of the different levels, setting out of the curved structure and interface details between different materials.
Overall the end result is a visually striking building, delivered on time and within budget. More importantly than anything else the whole team is extremely proud to have been involved in this project which will provide a fantastic facility for the treatment of people with life threatening conditions.
