Churchill Hospital development, Headington

Project: Churchill Hospital development, Headington

FDT is playing a key role in a £109 million PFI-funded hospital development, in Oxfordshire, that will revolutionise cancer care.

The Churchill Hospital development at Headington, designed with the help of cancer patients, brings together cancer services previously provided at Radcliffe Infirmary, Churchill and John Radcliffe Hospital.

The 14,000 sq m roof features a number of paved roofs, with access for staff or patients, and a 600 sq m roof garden donated to the hospital. Ashgate Roofing Systems Ltd installed Rhenofol CGv to all areas other than the roof garden and paved roof sections.

The membrane, selected for its ease of application and longevity, was bonded to 90mm insulation on a 2mm torch-on vapour barrier with a concrete substrate. The terrace roofs are protected by rubber mats and generally inverted. The roof garden was installed by external specialists and fitted over a completed Rhenofol CG roof protected by insulation and 35mm rubber safety matting.
