VCCC wins three Government Design Awards

The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) has won three awards at the 2016 Government Design Awards. Recognition included the top award, Best Project, and also included wins in the commercial architecture and interior design categories.

The awards, run by design collective The Design 100, aim to celebrate the courage of both commissioners and creators of public sector design and innovation projects.

VCCC is a 130,000-square-metre purpose-built centre-of-excellence for cancer research, treatment, education and care which opened to staff and patients on time and on budget in June 2016 the $1 billion. It is home to cancer research, clinical services and educational facilities for Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne Health and the University of Melbourne.

Delivered under a public-private partnership, the Victorian Government contracted the Plenary Health consortium comprising Plenary Group, the Grocon/PCL builder joint venture, facilities manager Honeywell to design, build, finance and maintain the project under a 25-year concession.

The STHDI+MCR architecture team that designed the facility for Plenary Health comprises Silver Thomas Hanley, DesignInc and McBride Charles Ryan.
