  • DesignInc, McBride Charles Ryan and Silver Thomas Hanley collaborated to complete the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) in Melbourne, Australia.

    The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) is a new $1 billion purpose-built facility in Melbourne’s Parkville Biomedical Precinct. Cancer is the largest disease burden in Victoria and the largest single cause of death in our community. It is the first Comprehensive Cancer Centre (CCC) in Australia and the new facilities will accommodate hundreds of researchers in an ESD benchmark building that will set new standards for health innovation. Through innovation and collaboration, the VCCC will drive the next generation of improvements in the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer.

    The VCCC building is the new home for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. It will also provide new cancer-related research space and clinical facilities for Melbourne Health and new cancer-related research and education facilities for The University of Melbourne.

    The new design is symbolic and representative of the bringing together of the project partners, of the creation of new networks and clusters of collaboration.
