The Acorn consortium, comprising Sacyr, Kajima Partnerships and Aberdeen, will be responsible for the design, construction, financing and maintenance of the new Velindre Cancer Centre, a new leading cancer hospital that will meet the highest quality standards in terms of sustainability and innovation.
This new center, which will have a surface area of more than 30,000 m2, is the result of the need to expand and improve the quality of care in the southeast of Wales, where it will serve 1.5 million people.
Velindre Cancer Centre is a leading reference hospital in education, development, innovation and research into cancer, especially the less common types of cancer.
The design of the new center will have a strong environmental and ecological character and will feature highly efficient energy systems. The infrastructure will respect the environment in which it is located, its landscape value and the protection and respect for the surrounding biodiversity as it is a protected area.
To this end, several measures have been implemented to guarantee the preservation of existing species, such as the location and relocation of animals and plants for their conservation, and the development of research and action programs in accordance with the hibernation periods of protected species
