Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre

Waterman have prepared a Technical Brief and undertook the Technical Advisory Role on behalf of the State Government of Victoria for the new $1bn world-class comprehensive cancer centre being built in Parkville, Melbourne.

The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) will be the largest combined clinical and research cancer centre in Australia and involves the collaboration of six partner organisations: Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, the University of Melbourne, Melbourne Health (which includes the Royal Melbourne Hospital), Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, the Royal Women’s Hospital and the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research.

New facilities will be developed on the former Royal Dental Hospital site, plus new facilities on the southeast corner of the Royal Melbourne Hospital City Campus site. The new facilities will provide over 90,000m2 of integrated and purpose-built cancer treatment, research and training facilities.
