The new Capital Region Cancer Centre (CRCC) is located adjacent and to the east of the existing Radiation Oncology building within the existing Campus of The Canberra Hospital in Garran, ACT and will be recognised as a centre of excellence both in cancer research and treatment and will provide integrated services in the areas of cancer detection, treatment, education and support.

The CRCC with an approximate GFA of 6850sqm will include an Ambulatory Care Clinic, Day Therapy Centre, Research facilities, meeting spaces for community groups and accommodation for clinical administration as well as patient information and support services.

The CRCC, with facilities and equipment capable of attracting leading researchers and clinicians from around Australia and beyond, will be run by the CRCS (which is a joint initiative of ACT Health and the NSW Greater Southern Area health Service) and will provide a range of best practice screening, assessment, diagnostic, treatment and palliative care services to the ACT and surrounding NSW region. Existing services include Oncology outpatients, Radiation Oncology, Haematology, Bone Marrow Transplant, Palliative Care, Oncology Pharmacy, Medical Oncology Research Unit, an active clinical trial program and a teaching program as part of the ANU Medical School including rural outreach clinics. As required by the brief the vertical alignment of the CRCC floors match the floor levels of adjacent buildings.

The new CRCC project includes all associated external works, courtyards, landscaping and car parking / civil works. All site building services are included within the scope, including but not limited to electrical services, communications, security, data, audio – visual and video conferencing, mechanical services, HVAC, BMS , wet and dry fire services, hydraulic services, and natural gas.

The project has been through an extensive value management exercise to address a significant budget overrun at PSP stage. This was successfully managed by Iqon which has resulted in alignment of the design to the current budget thereby achieving endorsement to proceed to construction.
