Geelong Hospital Andrew Love Centre Stages 1+2
Silver Thomas Hanley
The $12m redevelopment and expansion of the Andrew Love Cancer Centre at Geelong Hospital involved the development of a fully integrated Cancer Centre including Chemotherapy, consulting and a further two bunkers, yielding a total of four bunkers on the campus.
Kane Constructions built the original Andrew Love Cancer Centre in 1991 and returned in 2004 to commence construction of a further two stages.
Stage 1 involved an additional level being added to the original building (Level 4) as well as a single level expansion to the Bellarine Centre located at the north of the campus.
Stage 2 included a three level addition to the south west elevation of the Andrew Love Centre and most importantly, the construction of two further radiotherapy bunkers.
Works were completed in 2006.
The Andrew Love Cancer Centre is one of the busiest radiotherapy facilities in the state, treating about 27,000 people a year, or just over 500 people a week.
Kane Constructions is proud to have delivered this vital piece of infrastructure for the local community.
