New Contract Award

Desco are delighted to have been appointed on a long term strategic partnership contract with Proton Partners International subsidiaries Rutherford Estates. Along with fellow design team partners JDDK Architects and Fairhurst’s Consulting Civil and Structural Engineers, we have now been confirmed as the incumbent team to deliver all future cancer centers for the company across the UK .

Proton Partners International is building four UK oncology centres in total, the first of which has recently opened in Newport, South Wales, and the other three centres are currently under development. Other UK sites are also under consideration.

Each cancer centre will offer proton beam therapy, a type of cancer treatment which is not yet available in the UK, in addition to conventional treatments such as chemotherapy, traditional radiotherapy, diagnostics, imaging, and wellbeing services. Dedicated supportive care will also be available to patients.

The company’s first centre in South Wales is currently offering conventional cancer treatments and proton beam therapy will be available next year.
