This was as 55-week Project, split into 3 Phases, with the addition of an

Phase 1 consisted of a 16-week programme to refurbish the ground floor of the

Phase 2 consisted of a 26-week programme involving major modifications to a
treatment room in the West Suite to allow the installation of a new treatment
machine. The work also included the upgrading of structural walls to provide
additional radiation protection.

major modifications to one of the treatment rooms in the East Suite to allow the
installation by others of a new treatment machine.
This work was completed on time and on budget.
