VIC – Australia
A single storey building constructed to house a linear accelerator for radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The structure is a combination of concrete and structural steel, clad in alucabond with cement sheeting with aluminium windows.
Two bunkers were constructed to house the linear accelerator, designed beyond normal Australian Standard building codes, to provide a safe environment for using radioactive equipment. This includes 1.8m thick floor, and 1.6m thick walls and ceiling.
The entire structure has been designed and constructed to allow for a first floor extension to be built above should it be required in the future.
