Dyson Cancer Key Facts

Dyson Cancer Centre

BREEAM is the assessment process for sustainability for new developments and covers the design, construction, and future management of the building. The building fabric was tested throughout the construction process and meets high standards for thermal insulation, air tightness and high levels of efficiency for heating, cooling, powering, and lighting.  There are several examples of the building’s sustainability credentials:

  • The use of marmleoum flooring, which is linoleum, a natural product
    290 square matres of solar panels, returning energy to the grid to improve sustainability.
  • Use of recycled air in special equipment managing air pressure in in-patient rooms to repel potentially devastating infection.
  • The construction of a major healthcare facility on a “brownfield” site following demolition of redundant buildings dating from the 1940s.
