Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre, Melbourne

The VCCC project comprised the construction of a new 13-storey building, as well as the addition of four new floors above the existing Royal Melbourne Hospital.

Victoria’s comprehensive cancer centre was a public-private-partnership (PPP) with the Victorian and Australian Federal Governments to create a world-class purpose-built facility for cancer research, treatment and care.

The VCCC project comprised the construction of a new 13-storey building, as well as the addition of four new floors above the existing Royal Melbourne Hospital. It was one of the largest and most complex construction projects in Australia, which set a new benchmark in the consultative design and construction of hospitals.

Our joint venture partner for the project was PCL, an independent contracting organisation with specialist experience building hospitals in North America.

Together with PCL, we were the design and construction partner of the Plenary Health Consortium delivering the project.

Early site works began in 2011 and final completion of the project was achieved in June 2016.

The VCCC combines the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre with new cancer research and clinical services for Melbourne Health and the University of Melbourne. In addition to the treatment facility, eight world-leading cancer organisations have come together to share knowledge and resources and drive the next generation of cancer research, education, treatment and care.
